Big Magic - part 3

Big Magic - part 3

I've left it a few weeks since my last post on Big Magic, to be honest because it made me feel quite vulnerable to share some of the personal worries that I did. But I am so grateful for all your lovely responses and comments, and it's given me plenty to think about over the last few weeks. 

Today will be the final part in this mini-series of reflections on the lessons I've found in Elizabeth Gilbert's bestselling book - if you've missed the first two posts you can catch up here and here.

Thank you to everyone who read the first part of my reflections on this deeply thought-provoking book, and especially to those of you who shared your own impressions either here or on Instagram - it definitely seems to be writing that has struck deep chords with many of us. Before I get started on the next selection of lessons from Big Magic, if you want to catch up on the first post, you can read it here.

Elizabeth Gilbert's Big Magic has been one of the biggest books in the self-help/personal development/creativity scene since it was published a couple of years ago. It seems to be on everyone's recommended reading list, and you can barely scroll through social media without a quote being posted somewhere. Many people claim it has changed their lives, and though I'm not quite that evangelical, I will say that it is definitely a book that has resonated strongly and made me think about my life and my relationship with creativity.
