Thinking About Creativity in a New Way

I think one of the biggest problems surrounding writing is fear. Fear that your writing is crap. Fear that others will agree that your writing is crap. Fear that you can’t be a successful writer. Fear that other people will read your stories. Fear that no one will ever read your stories. Fear that you have no idea what you’re doing. Fear that there are writers out there better than you.

This fear is what keeps most people from jumping into the writing world.

While I’ve been wondering this, a family member recently pointed me to this amazing video of New York Best Selling Author Elizabeth Gilbert of the book, Eat, Pray, Love.

It was within couple minutes of watching that I quickly realized this is a video every writer should see.

In it, Elizabeth discusses the burden we place on those of us who do something creatively and the fear that follows such professions. She also shares what she’s learned from researching creativity through the ages.
