The First 50 Pages of Big Magic
Hello Dear Followers,
Today is a good day! Author Elizabeth Gilbert’s new book “Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear” has arrived and it is simply wonderful!
Of course, I had to have it today, I couldn’t wait one more day for it, so after work I ran to Barnes & Noble and grabbed my copy. Let me let you in on a little secret, Amazon has one coming to me on Sept. 29, but I couldn’t wait that long and what is wrong with having two books?
It is an easy read filled with anecdotal stories and inspiration. And I swear I can hear her as I am reading this book, I hear her humor and wit.
For those of you that haven’t started reading it yet, (because you aren’t crazy like me who ran through a mall parking lot quickly grabbed the book and ran back to her car before the meter maid could ticket her), I won’t give too much away.
But here are some things you should know from the first 50 pages of the book:
- Embrace your fears about creativity, understand that they will join you on your journey, but never under no circumstances let them direct your path.
- Be brave and have “stubborn gladness” in your pursuit for creative living.
- We all have “buried treasures” within us that are just waiting to be discovered if we want to.
- Fear is boring. It only has one single message. (I won’t tell you what that message is – read the book and find out!)
So far ( as most of her fans figured) Liz shines and she is a true hero to us all. I strongly encourage you to pick up “Big Magic” tomorrow and get started on reading it.
Until next time!
