I’m sure most people have come across the wonderful world of TED.com. If you haven’t, you’re in for a real treat. TED is essentially a library of fantastic, inspirational talks by some of the world’s most interesting people. The topics are vast, and you will no doubt find many that peak your interest.

I was told of one recently about the source of genius and creativity. “You’re a writer, you’ll find this interesting.” This particular presentation is by author Elizabeth Gilbert, best known by her work ‘Eat, Pray, Love’. Elizabeth presents a very interesting view of how people receive the inspiration. I don’t want to pre-empt what she says, but will suggest that if you are a creative person, and have ever suffered from or been worried about “block” (ie writer’s block), then you will find this very interesting.

Take a look!
