December has been so busy so let’s just quickly talk about some of the books I’ve been reading!
About In A Sentence (ish): Elizabeth Gilbert talks about creative living and overcoming fear and other obstacles in your creative life!
Thoughts: I liked this one and will share some of my favorite quotes from it in another post but I think it’s a good one for all creative types — especially writers. I will say I thought it was going to be a little bit more ~practical~ type of book (more tips/exercises/etc) but it was definitely more inspirational. Sometimes I found myself skimming (especially because some of her thoughts on creativity were a little hokey for me and also some were repetitive) but the parts that stuck with me were things I so needed to hear. It’s intended for all creative types but I do think it would super benefit writers and, also as a blogger, I got a lot out of it, too. I can’t wait to share some of the things I learned from it later and that definitely helped reframe things for me. It’s a short, quick read that I think will be good for anyone feeling like they need a little inspiring kick in the pants or who needs to work through some roadblocks in their creativity as she touches on quite a few things that could hinder.
