Elizabeth Gilbert on nurturing creativity

on

The cre­ative process is uncon­trol­lable and nev­er quite there when you want it. But when it comes you bet­ter be ready or it will pass you by.

Eliz­a­beth Gilbert mus­es on the impos­si­ble things we expect from artists and genius­es — and shares the rad­i­cal idea that, instead of the rare per­son “being” a genius, all of us “have” a genius. It’s a fun­ny, per­son­al and sur­pris­ing­ly mov­ing talk.
