The War of Art (CATALOG 2/16/2023)

My latest list of recent likes and favorite links…

  1. How did I not know about the wisdom of author Steven Pressfield. I am devouring his book The War of Art with joy and appetite for more!

  2. I scored In Praise of the Needlewoman for a pittance at the thrift store recently. It’s full of all kinds of glossy artwork featuring women busy at their knitting, embroidery, weaving, etc. A keeper for sure!

  3. I guess winter is for books… The Writer on Her Work features essays by Alice Walker, Anne Tyler, Joan Didion, and others and is convincing me of the sisterhood, passion, madness, etc., I share with these women. It’s also inspiring some writing of my own!

  4. …and more books! As Lent approaches, I plan to dig into Journey to the Cross by Paul David Tripp. I became familiar with Tripp’s work when gifted his My Heart Cries Out, a book of faith-based poetry. I trust Journey will be just as rich in content and creativity.

  5. I thoroughly enjoyed Storystorm 2023, a month of daily blog posts by children’s book authors. At the same time, readers were encouraged to “create 30 story ideas in 30 days.” Mission accomplished—and then some!

  6. On my to-do list: Winter Writing Sanctuary 2022 complete with PDFs full of prompts. The “classroom” implodes at the end of July so, if my current schedule doesn’t allow for it, I’m fine with embracing the notion of winter writing in the heat of summer.

  7. I finally began crocheting a log cabin afghan and love the feeling of sweet progress with each completed spiral. Photos to come of my creation, which already bears that awesome lead-vest feeling as I work on it.

  8. I’ve got a DIY air-dry clay recipe ready and, of course, a healthy stash of yarn… I can’t wait to experiment with crochet and clay fusion!

  9. I think this is my fourth crochet-along with Breann Mauldin at the helm, but my first making blocks. Lord willing, I will eventually have at least 28 blocks to piece together into a blanket. Talk about texture galore!

  10. The first episode of Dear Edward on Apple TV Plus rocked me to the core. And its various storylines around the psychology of grief continue to keep me riveted. My heart is truly with dear Edward.
