Elizabeth Gilbert on the elusive creative genius

From time to time, I need to remind myself that writing is what I love doing.

That I don’t need to take on other people’s expectations while doing it.

So I really appreciate Elizabeth Gilbert’s TED Talk on the topic of expectations and the idea of genius. And I think anyone doing anything creative is going to benefit from this too. So even though this video is a few years old now, just in case you have not seen it, here you go – let me know what you think in the comments:

Marisa is a globetrotting freelance writer, journalist and editor with cat for hire (her, not the cat). She is usually based in Melbourne but is currently flouncing around in Perth for a week for the Inaugural 2018 KSP - Varuna Foundation Fellowship. She will be at Melbourne's Continuum and online running a Writers' Bloc course in the coming weeks.
