by Elizabeth Gilbert – by far one of the best books I’ve read. Speaks of creativity, fear that accompanies any artist/creative, and reinforces making your Art. It talks of Big Magic, or Flow as some call it and inversely Resistance which tries to sabotage one’s efforts.The Dip: A Little Book That Teaches You When to Quit (and When to Stick)
