OK, I'm doing it again -- I'm thinking about... things. I'm not sure how I got to this point, but in the past week I've watched two videos that have made me sit up, brush the Fig Newton crumbs off my belly, and pay attention.
Firstly, this TED talk by Elizabeth Gilbert (Eat, Pray, Love) in which she talks about creativity and genius, and how to get yourself one.
B of all, from Malcolm Gladwell (Blink, Tipping Point), this talk about genius*, and what it takes to git 'r done.
Yeah, they're not what one might call hilarious, but they've got me thinking that I just might be able to fashion myself into a writer of sorts eventually, if I hack away at it long enough.
