Creativity and being a genius

Here’s a fabulous talk by Elizabeth Gilbert, the author of the hugely successful Eat Pray Love on nurturing creativity. I loved her anecdotes about the poet Ruth Stone and the singer Tom Waits. I know exactly what they go through. Most of all, the new “attitude” (she explains it in her talk) that she has adopted in nurturing her own creativity is fabulous. Listen to the whole talk. It is worth it.
