  "Compulsively Readable Liz Gilbert" by zodejodie4 (see profile) 02/08/16

3.5 Stars - I love Elizabeth Gilbert & I love reading her work. The concept of this book intrigued me. Don't we all want to live beyond fear? Don't we all want to be fearless? Don't we all want to be more creative? More badass? More something? I know I do. I found myself nodding in agreement with Liz's narrative quite a bit, but that doesn't mean that I didn't also find myself feeling challenged & not entirely convinced at all points. For me at least, this book was very much about not letting the big, bad Perfectionism hold you back. Fear dressed up is still fear. It's also about learning & knowing that you're good enough, you're just plain enough. It's about finishing & letting go. What's not to love about that?

 
  "Big Magic" by Carolynr (see profile) 09/14/16

author digs deep into her own generative process to share her wisdom and unique perspective about creativity. she offers insights into the mysterious nature of inspiration. She asks us to embrace our curiosity and let go of needless suffering. She shows us how to tackle what we most love, and how to face down what we most fear. She discusses the attitudes, approaches, and habits we need in order to live our most creative lives. Balancing between soulful spirituality and cheerful pragmatism, Gilbert encourages us to uncover the “strange jewels” that are hidden within each of us. Whether we are looking to write a book, make art, find new ways to address challenges in our work, embark on a dream long deferred, or simply infuse our everyday lives with more mindfulness
i have always liked this author but sadly this book did nothing for me. It did not resonant to me, but maybe it will for someone else.
