Is Your Creative Genius Hiding ?

Not so many words from me today

‘Cept to say I did a post back in January of 2012 called, Must Writers Suffer Melancholy, Anguish, and Depression?

In that post, I said:

“Being a creative writer seems to me to be one of the weirdest professions on the planet.

“Catering to imaginary characters who may seem more real than the folks next door can bring certain challenges.

“Many writers have faced suffering so debilitating they wanted to die—some have clung to suicide as their only solution

“Does it have to be this way?

“Why would creating stories be so rife with mental and emotional distress?”

Later in that post I embedded a video of Elizabeth Gilbert called, Your Elusive Creative Genius, which is too good to only appear once in this blog.

I’m going to add to it with a video of Amy Tan called, Where Does Creativity Hide?

Is the elusive nature of genius why so many writers get so stressed out?
