Writer: For Instruction and Encouragement, Read Brainpickings.org

Here’s an example. If you read the piece at the other end of that link, you will receive several blessings:

  • You will meet Ann Patchett, whose wisdom about writing is exquisitely life-giving
  • You will be introduced in passing to Maria Popova, mother of Brainpickings.org, and her contagious love of writing, writers, and you
  • You will learn the awful journey of the butterfly
  • You will learn how to embrace that journey through love and forgiveness
  • You will find out how to get more of these incredible riches every week, and have another opportunity to develop the writer that you are

Let’s not bother with more stuff here. Go, read, absorb, forgive, grow. I love you.
