The book centers around creative living, and boy, has it resonated with me. I even realized that I had a Big Magic moment not that long ago without even realizing or appreciating the gravity of the moment.
Big Magic is when creativity strikes you like lightning. It’s when inspiration slaps you upside the head and yells in your ear until you put the pen to paper. And when you finally start realizing what the message is, it flows through you like a supernatural force. Like it has always been the truth. It doesn’t happen often, but when it does, it truly feels like magic.
I had the idea for a story in college. I even wrote it as a short story, but it never felt quite ready. The idea was probably the most intriguing one I had during my college courses and it kind of lingered and hung around until one day, almost three years later, that I realized what the story was.
I realized it was a novel, not meant for the constraints of twenty pages. I realized the details were different but the emotional stakes were the same. And then like blood running through my veins – it became a part of me.
It tapped me on the shoulder all day at work – demanding an audience. I repeated it in my head over and over. The voice became so loud that I had no other choice but to write them down and they became the starting point of my novel. And I’m sharing them with you.
Has anyone else had this kind of experience? If you have, I’d love to hear about it and connect. Comment below.
