Radio Station KFKD

In Bird by Bird, Anne Lamott describes the radio station KFKD. KFKD is a station that plays two channels into a writer's head, non-stop, 24 hours a day. In one ear, you're likely to hear about how wonderful and brilliant you are and in the other ear the streaming station is all about bitter self-doubt. Unfortunately, my streaming station has been zoomed in on self-doubt. Even after an early morning walk, KFKD was still playing loudly. So rather than writing a post on "how to be creative" today, I decided to turn to a few experts for inspiration.

If you're dealing with a streaming station that isn't very helpful or encouraging, I highly recommend watching these videos:

With gratitude,


Has simplicity gone "mainstream"?
