Big Magic Creative Living Beyond Fear OverviewBig Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear by Elizabeth Gilbert is a motivational self-help book for anyone looking to live a more creative lifestyle. Gilbert writes in the first person and addresses the reader directly throughout the book. There is no narrative through-line, but rather a series of anecdotal stories from Gilbert's life mixed with advise and encouragement. Each anecdote serves to illustrate a point the author is trying to make about her approach to creative living. Big Magic is divided into six parts and is organized by the book's six themes: courage, enchantment, permission, persistence, trust, and divinity. These six themes are what Gilbert believes every person needs to embrace in order to live a joyful creative life.
