I can’t quite count how many people have suggested this book to me in my lifetime. I can’t tell you why I’d been so resistant to pick it up. Probably as I’ve done so much therapy and work on my sobriety in my life I’m like “Another self-help book. Pass.” Well let me tell you friends I should of heeded this advice much sooner. This book is a GEM. An absolute delight. Energetically it bubbles, fizzes and pops with excitement and reminds you why you became an artist in the first place. Please learn from my mistake and pick this book up today. You won’t regret it!
The most inspiring aspect in this book is the way that Elizabeth looked at rejection. It’s the artist’s dilemma. We need to get our work out into the world, but rejection often cuts us down and stops us in our tracks. Elizabeth saw rejection as a game and that it was to be expected. She kept writing no matter what the feedback as she was simply following her heart song. She is now a nationally recognized author with several New York Times Bestsellers. She’s just awesome and I’m grateful for this honesty and vulnerabliy. Helps me apply this to my own life.
