Lady Gilbert

A little dedication post to a clever, talented, and generally pretty great woman:  Elizabeth Gilbert.

Part of why I adore her so much is for her wit and humor.. she isn’t afraid to crack silly jokes, poke a little fun, but also attend to serious subjects with care and intelligence, and quite a bit of insight.

If you follow her at all then you already know this:  She has a new book coming out in September!  And it seems totally up my alley, all about creativity and taking chances.  Yesssss… good stuff all around.

I began doing the Twitter thing recently, and she was one of the first people I started following.  Definitely one of my favorites, she keeps things lively (and ever-inspiring!)

Her website is full of goodies too.  This is from a piece she wrote about her Thoughts on Writing:

In the end, I love this work. I have always loved this work. My suggestion is that you start with the love and then work very hard and try to let go of the results. Cast out your will, and then cut the line. – Elizabeth Gilbert
