If you couldn’t tell by Wednesday's post, let me be clear that even this poor attempt at steering clear of print mediums has made me as grumpy as I have been over the course of the last year. Through avoiding books however, I did discover time to clean out a few drawers that I noticed were in shocking conditions of disarray. Here I will hand it to The Artist’s Way. I’m not sure that reorganizing my clutter is what Julia Cameron hoped I would accomplish, but the exercise served as a wake up call as to what, by sticking your nose in a book, you CAN fail to observe.
Here are a few other things that I cheated on, uh, I mean read this week:
A joke (please forgive me but this is my type of humor), and two fantastic posts, here and here on how to organize your writing, at a blog called Where Sky Meets Ground.
A post on Putting Pen to Paper, that serves as a reminder to count the blessings in life. Click on Katie’s picture on the sidebar for more information, and if you are so inclined, say a prayer.
One FANTASTIC saying, from Sarah with a Chance that I copied from her blog last week and stuck on the wall by my computer:
"You need to tell the person in your head telling you what you are and are not capable of to shut the hell up."
Oh, and though I was trying not to read at this point, honest I was, an impossible-to-miss sign at a local take-out restaurant called Circes, supporting a car repair shop down the street that recently introduced a new product:
"McBriens now has gas.
(Not from us.)"
