I was browsing a bookstore and found an aisle offering boxed sets of movies packaged with the books they were based on. A little girl picked up Frankenstein and handed it to her mother, who rolled her eyes. “You don’t want that. That’s for boys.” I assume the mother had never heard of Mary Shelley....Read more →

Tried to tell Lady MacWombat this one is a little scary for her, but she can't resist a title after a #LizzieSiddal poem. Glad she's still cozy by the radiator! #wombatfriday

What are you working on?
Here's another quote from my writing/sketchbooks:
"It's far better to have a mediocre outline of a novel or business plan that can be reworked later than a vague and flittering concept that is likely to fade away from sheer inertia. By acting, we make things concrete; action breeds motivation, not the other way around."
~Todd Henry, in The Accidental Creative

I have a lot of great ideas, or so I think. Sitting down and working on them can be hard, though. Those ideas are so ugly when I first start! It takes so much time to get it the way I want it!

But if you don't start, you'll never get there. So I'm going to sit down and get some words down today, no matter how ugly they are. Because having words down means I'm closer to having something awesome to share.

So what are you working on? Anything fun?

Getting into reading isn't expensive, and it shouldn't have to be:
Information is power, and reading more enhances your knowledge and the connections your brain makes between the things you learn. Even so, books cost money. Your budget may not be as flexible as you'd like, but even on a lean budget you can read more. Here's how.

'Mariana' by Millais draws from both Tennyson and Shakespeare. With its jeweled tones and attention to detail, it is an excellent example of Millais' work.
