Listening to Gilbert’s narrate Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear was delightful, she has the most lovely voice and is an excellent narrator, but I decided to also get the Ebook version, this is one of those books you want to re-read, highlight and write notes along the way.
“It’s okay if your work is fun for you, is what I’m saying. It’s also okay if your work is healing for you, or fascinating for you, or redemptive for you, or if it’s maybe just a hobby that keeps you from going crazy. It’s even okay if your work is totally frivolous. That’s allowed. It’s all allowed.”
I’ll try to post a proper review later but to the friends who recommended this to me, thank you and I am sorry for doubting you. I’ll be now the one recommending it to a few friends myself.
I’ve heard the expression “sometimes you find books and sometimes books find you”, the latter was definitely the case for me with Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear.
