Dear Reader – (Days 13 and 14) – On Going Analog

Dear Reader

Dear Readers,

I’m taking the weekend off.

I don’t know if this makes me a slacker or a woman who’s just grown into knowing what she needs, and in turn, decides to respect herself.

I hope it’s the latter.

I’m spending today and tomorrow analog. No more screen time for me. I’ve been feeling buzzy and angsty at the ends of my days, and I suspect it might be because of how connected I’ve been to the Internets.

Some people can stay firmly attached to the www without repercussion, but I can’t. It’s not in my nature.

So while I’m away, I’ll direct you to a few articles or people who might strike your fancy:

Check out Austin Kleone if you’re looking for art or writing inspiration. He’s a creative based in Austin, Texas, and he just published a journal to go along with his book, Steal Like an Artist. I wanted to choose just one link from his page, but I just couldn’t do it – there’s too much good stuff over there. Here’s a video to whet your whistle.

And, perhaps, head over to Design Sponge. I couldn’t get over the simplicity and on-pointness (notaword) of this article: (How to) Get Over Comparing Yourself to Other Creatives

And speaking of comparing – through the Write31Days Challenge, I came across Alison Wren. Her entire thirty-one days are based on just that – overcoming the comparison trap. Make a cup of tea, and take a few minutes to see what she’s put together.

And, if you’re feeling “bake-y”, might I suggest this single crust apple tart that’s easy enough for a weeknight? I’m salivating all over again, and I’m ready to try it.

Enjoy your weekend, friends!
