Why Are Writers So Scary?: Elizabeth Gilbert and Creativity
I watched this video quite a while ago, but it stuck with me. Gilbert's opening raises an interesting question: Why does writing seem, to so many, like such a scary profession? What makes people so uncomfortable with what we do? Whatever your opinion of Eat, Pray, Love (me? I liked it), listening to Gilbert tease out her creative passions during this 20-minute TED talk is inspirational.
