Elizabeth Gilbert: About Genius

video

TEDTalks recently posted a speech by Elizabeth Gilbert. Her topic was genius, and what she had to say completely changed the way I think about my writing process, my music performances, and my teaching of the gifted.

If you have time to watch the video, please do. It is WELL worth the time, which is about 19 minutes.

Keep writing.
