TED Talk Tuesday: Your Elusive Creative Genius

Most of the friends I've made on Blogger are writers. This one's for you.

I really like Elizabeth Gilbert. The writer of mega-hit Eat, Pray, Love is a woman who thinks very deeply about who she is and is in touch with herself in a way that gives every sentence she speaks an air of strong emotion.

Here, she talks about the pressure we put on creative people. She hits us with the blunt truth that her best work is most likely behind her. Once we realise that, the world of possibilities opens up much wider. It's funny and reflective. Go ahead.
