BIG MAGIC | Elizabeth Gilbert

Big Magic is just that, Big Magic. It was essentially the book that brought out the creative side of my personality, after many years of trying to hide it as a teenager with hopes of fitting in. Gilbert shows the reader how to accept and be proud of their creative side, and does a fantastic job of explaining what life is like for a creative person. It may be full of failure at time; living a creative life isn't necessarily easy. But with the risk, comes amazing rewards. This book is a must read, hands down.
