We talk a bit about our trip to Kentucky to hang out with other writers, and then Maile makes a surprising admission about Elizabeth Gilbert and her wonderful book on writing and creativity, Big Magic. We dig into Gilbert’s novel approach to rejection letters, how to create in the face of resistance, and why you don’t need anyone’s permission to be creative.

I loved listening to you both. I can relate. I avoided “Big Magic,” too, for the very same reasons. I’m glad I’m not alone. :)
Maile, I’m struggling with believing I’m a writer because I don’t have a degree nor am I published. So I resonated with what you said. Thank you for being so genuine and transparent. You’re special. :)
