Thanks for this Jen, it was wonderful!
I really like her btw, so to the point with really sharp thoughts and ideas. Amazing how of what she talked about can be generally applied to any creative process.

I really find it interesting how all creative people have a need to create and to be recognized. That is so true. I liked what she said about working towards the love of it not toward the recognition, that will come eventually.

You find the best friday films :o)

I LOVE this!!! That is one of my favorite books. I always recommend it to writers.

Thanks for sharing this.

Yep-- it's a great one to re-read every once in a while.

I really like the concept that creative 'success' is not predicated on whether things are immediately financially viable (someone should remind the current publishing industry...)

Oh yes-- and Wall Street, and society in general...
