I confess—I spend a lot of time reading online. Because I blog, I like to see what other people are writing on their blogs. I also research topics that might be useful for an article or for background in a novel, which lead me down all sorts of interesting rabbit holes.
Whenever I come across a posting that particularly appeals to me, a save a link, with the intention of revisiting it. And periodically, I go through my links and reread article after article.
Some are just too good to keep to myself; so I’m going to share some today that I found especially inspiring:
- Why you shouldn’t be afraid.
- You don’t think you’re smart enough? Here’s what you can do about that.
- Do you feel as though all your creativity dried up? These suggestions will get the juices flowing again.
- Have you ever had a mountaintop experience, a time when you learned so deeply, and you knew it was a unique revelation, especially for you, and you couldn’t afford to ever forget it? What if you could write a letter to yourself, to receive at a later date and remind yourself what’s important?
- Have you ever wanted to start something artistic, but hesitated because of self-doubt?
- Ten artists’ secrets to success.
- What writers say about reading.
- Where should you go on vacation?
- I keep promising myself I’ll write down beautiful sentences I find in books.
- What various United States presidents have said about arts education.
That’s enough for this time. I’ll share more another day.
Thanks to all the writers who originally posted these articles—I’m deeply blessed by your efforts.
