Free read ñ Big Magic 104 Ckle what we most love and how to face down what we most fear She discusses the attitudes approaches and habits we need in order to live our most creative lives Balancing between soulful spirituality and cheerful pragmatism Gilbert encourages us to uncover the “strange jewels. Is it mere coincidence that BIG is synonymous with FAT and that MAGIC is one of those obliue words difficult to put your finger on like CHANCE Because I think that s a better title for this book Fat Chance That s the message here you re gonna fail you big loser Where s the big magic in thatI get it some artists are confused about the outcomes or reasons for pursuing creative ventures It s true most of us are going to fail and fail again Many of us will eventually give up trying Gilbert s aim here seems to be getting people to think differently about art to force them to realize that the business sucks and the process isn t always easy but we should all be happy because we re like children finger painting our hearts outSomehow the fact that this advice comes from someone whose net worth is 25 million doesn t make it any easier to swallowThe very fact I read this book is a testament to Gilbert s brilliance It was her 2009 TED Talk that turned me onto the author a writer I had written off previously solely because of her wild success Not surprisingly it is Gilbert s wonderful well presented argument about the elusive genius that opens up Big Magic The message in these chapters is inspirational we all have creativity relax it s not your fault if your genius eludes youBut the rest of the book gets lost in Gilbert rubbing our faces in her success I know it s not easy she seems to be saying creativity won t pay the bills so just uit thinking about it as a occupation and think of it as finger paintingThere s truth there no doubt But Gilbert seems too desirous of proving her point by stretching truths She points out how creative occupations are inherently worthless the least valuable occupation in society Objectively perhaps that roofer s role in society can be easily uantifiable but to ignore the artist s role in shaping change and eliciting awe to call art arguably useless seems rather narrow minded What would your muses think Liz Name one roofer from history whose work was meaningful than Michelangelo s ceiling Also Gilbert belittles creative higher education by smashing the MFA in writing declaring it a fruitless activity To prove her point she highlights that no American winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature had ever earned an MFA Point proven well done Except that half of the winners of the Nobel predated the existence of the MFA Those who followed were entirely established before the MFA really gained momentum in the writing community Likewise the Internet is rather useless because Buddha never surfed the web and Jesus declared disdain for Starbucks by having never consumed a cup of joeIn the end I think there are definitely glimmers of brilliance in this book and perhaps it is a great book for those who are kidding themselves about the arts Me I m prepared for the toughness I expect rejection I m still here because I love doing it I whine from time to time but I don t plan on uitting I have no backup Perhaps I should enjoy my occupation but being told I m a failure isn t exactly going to make me jump for joy Gilbert s insight while largely accurate is salt on an open wound for those of us who know it sucks And I guess the message of Big Magic is that it will continue to suck even when one of my books takes off and is made into a well financed motion picture Fat Chance

Talk about receiving the right message at the right time Wow Big Magic is one of the most honest discussions about the creative process that I ve ever read Gilbert strikes a playful and conversational tone but make no mistake this is all straight talk Her no BS attitude helps do away with the unrealistic expectations and unnecessary melodrama attached to the concept of creative living like how she so expertly pish poshes the tormented artist ideal And in its place she asks all people who feel called to create writers painters musicians whatever to uietly and joyfully accept their creative inclinations and ideas as gifts from the universe She reminds them to approach their creativity with curiosity and openness with playfulness and joy even when it s tough even when there is no Pulitzer no bestseller list no call from the Met Own that creativity she encourages And also stay light with itWell this was the message I apparently desperately needed to hear I m a stay at home mom with three young children And when people ask me what I do that is what I always tell them But that isn t what I want to tell them What I want to tell them what I want to shout from the rooftops in fact is that I m a writer Sure barely anyone reads what I write I ve never been published and it probably goes without saying that I ve never been paid for a single sentence In other words no one really gets anything out of my work but me But I love it straight up So I keep writing regardlessYet it feels weird to declare yourself A Something when that something doesn t earn you money or status or likes or hits or retweets Which means even though this side passion feels so authentically me I hide it so people won t think I m a loser an imposter a wannabe an embarrassment a failureand the list goes on I guess this reality had been bumming me out than I realized because when I read the following words they resonated with me in an unimaginably powerful and loving way like I was receiving a cosmic hug Shake yourself free of all your cumbersome ideas about what you reuire in order to become creatively legitimate You do not need a permission slip from the principal s office to live a creative life Or if you do worry that you need a permission slip THERE I just gave it to you Now go make something In other words Gilbert s message is this just accept that you need to create Accept that this is a part of you that you are ALREADY creatively legitimate And just do what you naturally feel compelled to do Do it with joy even when it gets difficult and don t worry about how it will be received if it s received at all If you are called to be a maker then you will just have to make Own who you are for better or worseSo that s what I m doing from now on I m owning it This is me stating my intent Hello world My name is Ladybug I am a writer
