Elizabeth Gilbert (Author of Eat, Pray, Love) on Muses and the Life of a Writer

I'm still on my writers retreat, but had something awesome I wanted to share. Each day we've had a mini-devotional about writing, goals, etc. Today, Tamara Hart Heiner talked about our personal expectations and how we view our writing/muse. Then she shared this awesome TED talk with author Elizabeth Gilbert. I love how she describes our thoughts as authors, society's view of creative people, and where our muse comes from. The talk is a little less than 20 minutes, but so worth viewing. Enjoy!

Great speech. I'd heard it before but I really needed to hear it again!
