“There will be a time when you believe everything is finished. That will be the beginning.” -Louis L’Amour.

A sort-of weekly review of what’s been nourishing me lately.

I’m an extreme extrovert, which is really great after I write a book and I have to go out into the world and talk to people about it, but not so great when I need to sequester myself long enough to actually get some real writing done.

Shut Up and Write the Book from Austin Kleon

I’m in a place right now in my own life where I’m trying to craft what my future will look like, and struggling with how to add what I want for myself as far as my career goes, without sacrificing all the good that is currently in my life…

Connecting with Joy from Karen Walrond

She’s offered up her hours and heart and finite energy not just to her own words, but also in the service of her community of fellow bloggers reading and reading and reading and commenting commenting commenting. She doesn’t just surrender to her mediocrity, she champions it and puts it on the internet’s refrigerator door for all to see.

A Blogger Goes to a Writer’s Conference from Ann Imig

…one of my most poignant memories is staying up late to finish Lord of the Flies. My room was still unfamiliar and didn’t yet smell like home, and there were crickets sounding outside as I read the last passage. Closing the book, I felt overcome. I set it on my chest and felt the weight of it while I breathed.

Thank A Writer from Maggie Mason

We are who we are
On our darkest day
When we’re miles away
Sun will come
We will find our way home

Carry On, from fun.

Have a miraculous weekend.
