Today is Friday the 13th!!
Last week I shared a link with a photobook Elise had created. I loved how she mixed in some of her own handwriting in these pictures. I’ve since been obsessed with her blog, especially her posts about Project Life. I don’t remember where I first found Project Life; it was possibly Pinterest. Since then, I’ve been dying to start a project, but I keep putting off buying the starter kits. I purchased one on Monday, got it in the mail on Wednesday and I’m ready to get started! (I’m more than ready; I’m actually a little obsessed)
I’ve always appreciated the Stratejoy blog, and I’m super into a post Molly did this week about Personal Quarterly Reviews. I think this is such a great idea. A company I worked for in the past does this, and I think it works much better than an annual review. I’m a bit late to the reviewing period, but I think I’d like to work on my own quarterly goals and review.
I’m going to meet Augusten Burroughs with my amazing friend Michaela next month. He is doing a reading/book signing in Boston and I purchased tickets yesterday for it. I was so bummed to find out that I recently missed Anne Lamott and Nicholas Spears a few weeks ago, and I’ve decided I’m going to be more proactive about meeting my favorite authors. Who would you love to meet?
I totally appreciate McSweeney’s posts, and I’m loving the most recent one I’ve read. An awesome MFA colleague of mine recently shared this to our MFA community and I thought I’d pass it on to you. Oh, and if you have a writer in your life, maybe you should look at this. And Finally, how do you guys feel about the font Comic Sans? Love it? Over it? Well, it has something to say to you.
