Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear by Elizabeth Gilbert, 288 pages
However, if you are a fan of Gilbert, or happen to have not read anything by her in the past and don't have preconceived notions, then by all means read this little gem. It is one big pep talk about doing what makes you creatively happy and not worrying if you don't become acclaimed or have to keep your day job in order to pay the bills.
I never actually thought about my job as a creative expression of myself, but after listening to this (read by the author) I have more confidence that I am doing exactly what I want and am supposed to be doing and am completely blessed to have the opportunity to do so. And . . . my next book to read is "State of Wonder" by Ann Patchett. Anyone who reads or listens to this book will know why.
