Kat Dale asked Elizabeth Gilbert:

Do you feel that sharing your story in Eat, Pray, Love on such a deep and personal level has made you a better writer?

Elizabeth Gilbert I once asked a woman who had just had a baby, "Do you feel that your years of yoga practice prepared you for going through yoga?" and she replied, "EVERYTHING I had ever been through in my life helped prepare me for going through labor." Similarly, I can say that EVERYTHING I have ever been through in my life has helped to make me a better writer...
