First, some links - an article I read thanks to one of my book club members (thanks, Janet), something that really struck a chord with me. In the comment section yesterday (and, yes, that was a rather deep subject for a Monday), we talked about distractions. I was reminded of the article and wanted to pass it on to anyone who was interested. The author, Pico Iyer, is talking about our need to be plugged-in and how many of us want to unplug. I found it fascinating that there are Internet Rescue Camps, software that enables the user to disable the Internet for periods of time, and hotels that promise an un-plugged stay for their clients (these are called Black Hole Resorts).
The article is fascinating - The Joy of Quiet
Second - thanks to Karyn, I've found a new blog that I am absolutely loving! I will warn you, the language is crude and his humour is dark and twisted - but his points on writing are striking a chord with me (more striking, more chords)! Today's post: 25 Things Writers Should Start Doing has come at the perfect time for me (that Universe again). Number 21 on the list really struck, er, got me - almost made me cry! Thanks Chuck Wendig for inspiration, motivation and making me start my day with laughter and tears (the yin and yang of emotions)!
Third - there is no third! Have I not shared enough? You already know that I relish Quiet and I'm an emotional basket case - and it's only Tuesday!! Enjoy your day, People of Blogland :)
