There have been times when I think about creative projects and I wonder what the point is. Why am I spending time on this? Does it matter? Who is going to care? What would it be like if I stopped making things? For anyone who also has these questions, Elizabeth's book is just the pep talk to shake one out of his/her creative doldrums.
I like that the focus is on living a creative life. And that doesn't have to mean quitting a day job and making full time income with one's art. She also shares that her writing is for her joy and if anyone else enjoys it that's great but she creates things for herself first. This is something I need to remind myself about from time to time.
So if you are like me and need a creative kick in the pants, check it out!
