    Важная книга.При этом она совершенно не только для писателей и людей творческих профессий.Слушала её в исполнении самой Гилберт на Audible -прекрасно читает и добавляет ещё яркости. Одна из немногих книг которую хочется купить в бумаге,чтобы положить на стол и перечитывать отрывки каждый день.

    Is it terribly uncreative to say that this book was inspiring?

    In general, this book talks about creativity and how important and fun it is to live a creative life. Indeed, I think, creativity and creative self-expression is an integral part of a happy life. We were all born creative humans and expressing ourselves through creativity - any and every form of art - is our birthright. You have to the right to create absolutely whatever you want to create. You are worthy of self-expression. You are allowed to speak your own truth. You have the right to have your own voice and your own vision. And we want to know your vision, ideas, thoughts, how you see the world. We want to see the world through your eyes. You were born to create, so go & beautify this world with your creations!

Quotes

    I firmly believe that we all need to find something to do in our lives that stops us from eating the couch. Whether we make a profession out of it or not, we all need an activity that is beyond the mundane and that takes us out of our established and limiting roles in society (mother, employee, neighbor, brother, boss, etc.). We all need something that helps us to forget ourselves for a while—to momentarily forget our age, our gender, our socioeconomic background, our duties, our failures, and all that we have lost and screwed up.
    Mr. Destiny 9 and 14has quoted5 years ago
    Instead, I simply vowed to the universe that I would write forever, regardless of the result. I promised that I would try to be brave about it, and grateful, and as uncomplaining as I could possibly be. I also promised that I would never ask writing to take care of me financially, but that I would always take care of it—meaning that I would always support us both, by any means necessary. I did not ask for any external rewards for my devotion; I just wanted to spend my life as near to writing as possible—forever close to that source of all my curiosity and contentment—and so I was willing to make whatever arrangements needed to be made in order to get by.
    Alexander Radutskyhas quoted6 years ago
    My fear became boring to me, I believe, for the same reason that fame became boring to Jack Gilbert: because it was the same thing every day
