How to Stay Sane & Creative or Why I Heart Elizabeth Gilbert

Writing is messy. At least for me it is. I'm not the kind of person who can sit down on a schedule and pump out consistent content. I need to percolate, ruminate and then regurgitate. It comes in batches for me and some would have me think this was a bad thing.

Not Elizabeth Gilbert, author of "Eat, Pray, Love." She gave an outstanding speech at TED about creativity that has helped me enormously. And you don't have to be a writer to relate. If you create anything on a regular basis from engines to entrees, you'll learn something from her words.
