“When an idea thinks it has found somebody–say, you–who might be able to bring it into the world, the idea will pay you a visit. It will try and get your attention.” – Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear and Eat, Pray, Love.
If an idea has grabbed your attention and has called you to place your fingers on the keyboard or put pen to paper, welcome to the magical world of writing. When you willingly collaborate with a creative idea, magic happens. You are thrust on an inspirational journey that changes your life.
