Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert
Elizabeth Gilbert is the author of Eat Pray Love, so if her name is familiar, that is why. This book Big Magic has the idea that ideas in general are really a gift given to you by the universe. Its up to you to acknowledge them and respond. To make those ideas become real. If you don’t they can leave you and go to someone else or just disappear forever. She dives into so many other aspects to being a creative person, ideas, and fear. It’s hard to put all of that into a short overview.
Read it. Any creative person, on any level, developers, writers, painters, creators, etc should read this. I know anyone that considers themselves as a creator, will get something from this book. Honestly, I think everyone can get something of value from this book. Its really good!
