This book is such gorgeous rumination and truism for those who see the divine essence of creating. I love how it weaves in the capacity and character of how and why we create and the convergence of our ideas and the power behind them when our dreams become a reality. Creativity is Brilliant and the source of genius can truly be brought to life when we are the architects and our soul is free to feed the need to create. It's all "right here at our fingertips."

"Bursts of Brilliance" is an excellent read for anyone trying to pursue their creativity. So many of the experience and feelings that Teresa Funke talks about in her book could have been taken from my own life. It's great to feel validated and to be given tools to get through those moments when you're frustrated or wonder if you are wasting your time pursuing your art. If you need a virtual pat on the back and new ways to view living a creative life, I recommend "Bursts of Brilliance."

I've followed Teresa Funke's blog for a long time, so found this collection of essay-like blog posts delightful. Based on the author's personal experiences and practiced observations, the entries show us that we are all creative in different ways, that every artist must find his own path to personal accomplishment and satisfaction, and that the acceptance and celebration of art, whether created by ourselves or others, enriches our lives in ways we might not expect.

This has been such a welcome reminder about why it's important to indulge creative impulses! Rather than make the process seem daunting and intimidating, Funke focuses on little ways and simple truths to keep the juices flowing and ease me back into the habit of writing after a long hiatus. Quick chapters made the process of reading even easier too, letting me fly through multiple chapters at a time and gather these tips and tricks, squeezing a few more meaningful moments into a hectic day.
