Big Magic

At the moment, I’m reading Big Magic (living a creative life without fear) by Elizabeth Gilbert. Something she wrote really resonated with me and I wanted to share it, she says she never asked her creativity as a writer to support her financially. She waited until Eat Pray Love was a success before she quit her day job. Many creatives have done this, the myth of the starving artist as the only way to be creative is wrong. I’m trying to figure out how to balance my own time making and creating with my “day job” as a sub/future classroom teacher. I’m hoping that this book and people I meet will help. Anyone else trying to figure out how to do the same? 🙏
