1. Poetry is everywhere
All you have to do is to step aside and marvel at the beauty around you.
One of the South African writers I read, Cornelia Fick, asks in her post Reading to feed your writing “Which books have inspired your writing journey?” All I can say is that I always remind myself, when I’m reading books (and also genres I don’t even intend to write in) that reading and writing fuel each other. But more importantly, the question makes me think hard about my comp authors, when it comes to fiction.
3. My gratitude journal is overflowing
Talking about writers who read others, I’m humbled by this unique and sterling review of my chap, From the Depths of Darkness, by Magaly Guerrero; a writer who is generous and supports my writings on the blogs and beyond. Many thanks, Maga!
4. On creative restlessness
It’s a kind of difficult to explain what this “restlessness” is. But I, at least, know where it stems from.
5. Living in the age of apps
“I don’t do yoga,” I’ve always said. But lately, I’ve been experience joint stiffness with all the sitting and hunched over the computer all day. I was thinking aloud about finding a yoga class, when one young fellow team member responded, “Forget the class, try this yoga app instead.” While I was skeptical about a yoga app, I decided to try it out. And I’m impressed!
So, I have to ask, are you using any cool app that makes your life easier? I’d love to hear about it.
Wishing you a wonderful and restful weekend!
