Because I Love To Interview My Friends
Wonderful interview! I really love Elizabeth's practice of pursuing things she's interested even when she's not good at them. I think our brains get so much more out of trying something new, failing a little bit, and recalibrating than they do out of just doing the things that are easy for us the first time. I've often been guilty of giving up on things I'm bad at...but I recently took up oil painting and am not very good at all, and am still loving the process! It's forcing me to look at the world in new ways, and what's better than that to feed our creative process??
Great interview led by amazing questions. Happy to see this format!
A wonderful, delightful, illuminating window into the writer's work, life, and world. You ask such poignant and perceptive questions, Andrei!
