The best books about #writing to read or revisit. http://bit.ly/2buhljH
When I was in New York a few years ago on a business trip, I decided to stay an extra day so I could explore the city before flying home. I ended up taking a very long walk down Fifth Avenue from 49th Street to Washington Square Park, near NYU. I needed the air, and the two mile stroll on a crisp October day encouraged a lot of the deep belly breathing I had been missing in my life over the past couple of months. Along the way I sto...

That time I went tomato picking and it reminded me of #PabloNeruda. http://ow.ly/jdhP3037ghf
I had been gone too long. Eight pounds of tomatoes were lovingly scored with an x, boiled, and were letting a bowl of ice cool their skins. I said it would just be a minute, starting the sauce, but there was still the peeling to do, and the scraping out of the seeds, removing the core. Tedious work. I let out a long sigh when my peripheral vision caught the movement of my husband's body leaning in the doorway. Tomato in one hand an p...

A few guidelines for practicing the art of slow writing:

1. Lead with intuition
2. Pursue fewer projects at a time
3. Do what’s best for you and the community you are building
4. Notice some of the trends and best practices, but only allow in what feels instinctually helpful
5. Ignore anything or any person who uses the word ""hustle""
6. Write at your own pace
7. Celebrate small milestones, always

We live in a culture that values speed, quickness, and urgency. So too, our writing has undergone this stretching in recent years, a moving away from the rhythms and pace of our own spirit towards strangling yet intoxicating internet voices shouting “Create three insanely useful blog posts every week!” “Go viral!” “Do what everyone else is doing!” “Don’t. Take. A. Day. Off. (Or your traffic will plummet.)” It’s all enormously stress...

Vote for your favorite #foodhaiku before Monday Aug. 15th! http://ow.ly/Fzfh3034YZW
Usually the cherry tomatoes arrive first, followed by plump heirlooms, and later in the season, I carry home pounds of tender Roma's for fresh tomato sauce. (I even buy 25 pound boxes from a nearby farm over Labor Day weekend, which you can read about here.) August is easily one of my favorite months to cook and eat in, and the three haiku's below are perfect accompaniments to the season. Vote for your favorite before Monday, August...
