Book Club :: Elizabeth Gilbert's, Big Magic Finale!



Another book down for book club! I've so enjoyed reading this with you and having it spark discussion not only on the blog but also in person! I love the literary tribe that's growing.

If you've missed any prior Book Club get-togethers, head over to Book Club and catch up! Still haven't grabbed the book? It's not too late. Promise! Buy it here.

So let's chat the fifth and sixth section and your overall thoughts on the book. I find myself referencing Big Magic almost daily. I'm still riveted by her idea of showing up for creativity, letting it know you're willing to put in the work and dedicate your time, and allowing it a safe space to crash. I'm also still hung up on the idea that ideas find you, and if you are not receptive to them, they will find someone else.

What I love so much about this book is the way it takes the responsibility away from the individual. Yes, once your spark is lit you have to put in the work, but you aren't a failure if you're not 'feelin' it every day. Not even a little bit. I think that alleviates a lot of pressure!

Ending this book felt strange. I thought I would feel emboldened to move forward and pursue all of my passions, and to a certain extent, I do. But I also feel like I knew this knowledge all along and someone just opened my eyes to it. So while my brain knows more, my soul still feels the same.

What are your thoughts? How do you feel at the end of the book? What really irritated you? What has stayed with you? What do you want to chat about? What do you want to read next!
