Creativity is not always something that comes to everyone easily but when you find it, it can be magical.
Big Magic is Elizabeth Gilbert’s exploration of what creativity is and how to harness it.
Think of it as wisdom from a dear friend rather than an instruction manual like The Artist’s Way.
What is it about?
It’s hard to pin down what Big Magic is exactly.
Not a manual, not a memoir like Gilbert’s breakout bestseller Eat, Pray, Love but more an exploration of what creativity is, how to find it and how to show up for it even when you don’t want to.
Told in Gilbert’s incredibly intimate style, it’s an exploration down memory lane and an intimate look at how other famous artists have found their way to creativity.
I’ve had an Audible account for a long time, and at various times tried to get into it but with an attention span of a goldfish and this challenge looming over my head, I knew I wanted to get through this book but I’m not able to read as much now.
So, I decided to try listening to Audiobooks on my commute into work and so far I really enjoyed it!
Back to the book
I really enjoyed reading this book, so I was thrilled to hear Elizabeth Gilbert narrate it.
It’s lovely to hear her unique twang narrate and it feels like you’re having an intimate conversation on the subject of creativity.
I can see myself coming back to the audio version just as much as I do the eBook version.
Would I recommend it?
I’d highly recommend Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear.
This is for anyone who’s been curious about creativity and wants to learn from a celebrated author who thinks she’s found the secret to harnessing it.
This is the 6th book in my 34 in 34 book challenge where I attempt to read or listen to 34 books in my 34th year of life.
