The Day Creativity Died Repeatedly

The Day Creativity Died Repeatedly

She died today.

23 times to be exact,  a small death each time she answerd the phone.  

Another 37 times, for every response to an inqury or communication created about something that did little to foster the creativity chained up inside of her.

Each communication tearing her ever further away from who she was, toward a person she doesn't want to be. 

Each death so imperceptible  - not to be seen, just felt...immensely.

I'm sure she's reading all of the comments on the photos I've posted and they are just encouraging her to try and try again. Gah.)   Read more >

10 Books I Think You Should Read Right Now

I am an avid reader, for lack of a better phrase. I read 240 books in 2013. My goal for 2014 is 300, though that's definitely a stretch goal for me. I read 25 books in January of this year. I read all genres. I read new books. Old books. Self-published books. I follow series. I listen to audiobooks. I buy books. I have books sent to me as gifts. I occasionally receive books from publishers for reviews, (though I rarely accept them because I hate feeling like I am obligated to review them), but most of my books come from my library.
