Genius for Artists

Some days I rue the fact that I have a ridiculous number of blogs in my feed reader.  Then other days, like today, I don’t.

Today I followed through on links from a post by Tim Ferriss of The 4 Hour Work Week and more recently The 4 Hour Body.  It led me to a TED talk by Elizabeth Gilbert on Genius.  Now, I do this creativity lark here at Oh Waily Waily out of a sheer hobbyist enjoyment of taking ideas and experiences out of my head and life and putting them on some virtual paper.  However, I know a few of you take the path of writing a lot more seriously than I.  I thought you might like this.

So enjoy the almost 20 minute talk and I hope when you get to the end you put your Genius in a good spot.  Mine is going to be kept over my left shoulder from now on, as it is an appropriate spot for watching what I’m going to do next.


One thought on “Genius for Artists

  1. I love TED talks. Que and I sometimes queue some up to watch after the kids have gone to bed and everything that needs doing has been done. Which hasn’t been in a while actually.
