How to Be a Writer


{This week: Registration for my online photography course closes tomorrow, how to be a writer, why composition notebooks are popular, and more.}

1. Rebecca Solnit on how to be a writer.

2. Why the basic marble composition notebook is still popular.

3. Inspiring writing quotes via BlankPage.

4. Truth: They were the big things.

5. Magic Lessons episode 207—Living the Dream and Facing the Nightmare—featured Neil Gaiman and it was GOOD! Gaiman’s description of writers as either dolphins or otters made me smile.

6. Last week, the latest issue of SWIMMER arrived in my mailbox. I loved this issue, especially the article about rest and recovery.

7. Simplicity quotes and images to lift you up.

8. Amanda always asks good questions: “…what if life is not this linear progression of events as we might expect?"

9. Loved this essay: Talking to strangers.

10.In The Water They Can’t See You Cry by Amanda Beard was an honest and interesting memoir.
