Nurturing our craft.

A few months back, Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love shared an interesting way of looking at the gift/curse that we all share as artists and writers.  The occasion was a presentation at TED, in California.  Not familiar with TED?  Take a few minutes (ok, about 20:00) and check out her idea for nuturing your creativity.  Success as a writer isn't about being a genius, it's about being willing to have one.  

After that, maybe give TED a short look around.  It's fascinating, inspirational, motivational stuff.  

(But don't spend too much time there at once, eh?  There's writing to be done.)
