1. Elizabeth Gilbert and Deepak Chopra Discuss Creativity

Liz & Deepak (GalleyCat)How do you define creativity? Writer Elizabeth Gilbert stumbled on a new answer to this question during a public conversation event with spirituality expert Deepak Chopra.

Chopra shared this observation: “All creativity is a break in logic.” Gilbert reported this discovery on her Facebook page and compared the act of succumbing to creative impulses to falling in love, forgiveness, faith, and “all the good stuff, in other words.” Do you agree?

Gilbert regularly engages with her fans in discussions about creativity through her social media pages. This study in creativity lead her to write a new book called Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear. Riverhead Books, a Penguin Random House imprint, has scheduled the release date for September 22nd.
