A lot of interesting articles this week.

  • Cats in stores.
  • I never really understood how vital the bison had been to the ecology of the prairies. Read how Native Americans are spearheading the effort to reintroduce bison to the wild.
  • Don’t you just hate it when you’re writing a scene in your novel and you get stuck? Here’s three ways to get unstuck.
  • Are you tempted to throw in the towel? Here’s why you should persevere.
  • Children’s book authors: when you submit a picture book manuscript, do you show where the page breaks are? It’s a controversy, but I like this approach.
  • A stroll through Jersey City, including a couple of awesome murals (be sure to scroll to the end).
  • Crap. I think I may be the friend that all my friends lovingly tolerate. I recognize myself in this poem.
  • The search for authenticity.
  • Oooo. More artistic people to follow on Instagram.
  • Yellow Submarine means different things to different people.
  • Connecting our Natural Worlds is an art quilt exhibition. In addition to photographs of the quilts, the website has links to videos of the artists talking about their creations.
  • How to write fiction about drug abuse when you have no clue.

Funny stuff. Pretty stuff. Serious stuff.

  • Some of these will make you laugh and some will make you cry, but it’s all good.
  • Writers, should you write a cozy mystery?
  • Did you ever have a great idea, get started on it, take a break from it, and feel guilty about never getting back to it? Sometimes you just gotta let go.
  • Nathalie escorts us on a tour featuring murals in Jersey City.
  • More murals; these are from Montreal. (FYI, Norm no longer coordinates Thursday Doors. Go to No Facilities for those now.)
  • How to say no. Why to say no.
  • Love flowers? You’re gonna love these photos.
  • Black artists (and artists of color) lack the opportunities their white counterparts enjoy.
  • You might enjoy this Instagrammer’s paintings for World Watercolor Month.
  • You have to see these amazing crochet projects. (I’ll pass on the broccoli hat, but I want almost everything else.)
  • The most beautiful gifs I’ve ever seen. Depending on your internet connection, they might take a few moments to load, but hang on, they’re worth it.
  • A sculptor abandons metal in favor of fabric.

Turkey sandwich, anyone?

  • Rust is beautiful.
  • Who knew squirrels were so photogenic?
  • Artist turns very plain buildings into works of art with her wildflower murals.
  • Beautiful zentangles.
  • Ten things every writer needs.
  • Incredibly detailed drawings.
  • If you’re as old as me, perhaps you’re discouraged that the ideal of the American dream that we grew up with has degenerated into nightmare capitalism, where the rich grow richer and everyone else grows poorer. It’s time for a reset. I am so looking forward to reading this new book and hopeful for a new direction for our country and the world.
  • Monoprinting tutorial. I’ve never done this. I would have to buy supplies. Maybe I will someday. Or I could request this stuff from Santa. . .
  • Where do quilters get their ideas?
  • If you love Zentangle, you might like this Instagram page.
  • Sketching around the ‘hood.
  • Something for the Post-Pandemic Bucket List (see ARHtistic License tomorrow for more): a trip to Singapore, even if you don’t leave the Jewel Changi Airport.
