Big Magic


“A creative life is an amplified life. It’s a bigger life, a happier life, an expanded life, and a hell of a lot more interesting life. Living in this manner—continually and stubbornly bringing forth the jewels that are hidden within you—is a fine art, in and of itself.”


This book is an inspiring guidance on how to bring more creativity into your life. The author shares her own journey as a writer while offering practical advice on how to live a creative life even if you are not an aspiring artist or writer.


KEY TAKEAWAYS:

1) Fear is going to be part of your journey and that is ok. Let your fears coexist with your passions. Let your curiosity guide you in exploring your creative side, while your fears remind you that you actually care about this a lot.

2) Commit to yourself (and to the world) that you are going to create something that is true and authentic to you, regardless of any reactions or rejections.

3) Don't make art as your primary source of income if that is something that would create an unbearable amount of stress. It will kill your creativity.
