Next to the episodes on the Back to the Drawing Board podcast, there exists The Bookshelf.
The Bookshelf is my gift to you. On Instagram, every first of the month, I share with you a book that reminds you how to look, gets you in touch with your creativity. These are not just books for artists, nor people who love art. They are books for people that want to learn to look, whether it's at veggies in the grocery store, or other people's body language.

Big Magic, by Elizabeth Gilbert
If you live at all on planet Earth then you must have heard about Big Magic before! Elizabeth Gilbert is a very well known author today, and this book of hers specifically, is one that I think almost all creatives must have read by now. It's a very inspiring read and Gilbert's somewhat romantic approach to creativity can feel like a breath of fresh air when creative life becomes a struggle. Interlaced with practical approaches, this book is one that's great for anyone looking to live more creatively, whether in your relationships, job or lifestyle.
Are you ready to look past the fear and the struggle and go after that thing that ignites your soul on fire? If so, then use the button above to purchase your own copy and join me in reading Big Magic this month!
If after reading this book you are ready to take your creative living to the next level with creativity coaching then I highly recommend episode 80 to you with Esma Kirim, a coach for creative professionals.
