But to be perfectly frank, this childish idea that the author of a novel has some special insight into the characters in the novel…it’s ridiculous. That novel was composed of scratches on a page, dear. The characters inhabiting it have no life outside of those scratches. What happened to them? They all ceased to exist the moment the novel ended. ~Peter Van Houten in The Fault in our Stars by John Green.

4, 6, and 7 are especially beneficial for the new year.

  1. I’ve read a bunch of these memoirs and found a few to add to my TBR pile.
  2. Natural fashion.
  3. For all the writers. Especially the freelancers. Do you deserve a reward today?
  4. How to be a good father.
  5. I love The Frugal Crafter! Here’s an upcycling project she recently posted. I love the video as well as the instructions.
  6. Ways to put failures and setbacks into perspective. (Warning: the F-word is used liberally in this article.)
  7. Using the Da Vinci Schedule to increase your productivity and prevent burnout.
  8. I think my next quilt project for myself should be a red-and-white Christmas quilt. Some of these done up in Christmas fabrics would work very nicely.
  9. I’d love to see the tools this artist used to cut this lacy octopus.
  10. Why art matters.
  11. I find this sculpture particularly moving.
  12. Your creativity requires structure.
