Creative Process

Ryan Holidays workflow on how to write a book

Im fascinated by the creative process and how others document their work and flow. This pictorial article by Ryan Holliday has lots of tips for the creative process.

I've done the note card thing for awhile for studying and for organizing my day via the GTD method so I especially enjoyed the notecard filing box and found his exhaustive post on he uses it to organize his notes as a reminder that I need to keep up with it and also that it might help me with scrapbooking. More to come.....

My Judgmental Self

I've been reading this Post Election Thoughts blog post from Lara Casey and I am floored by her truth, confessions, and humility.

Please go read her post before continuing because its a life lesson.

Is calling Pres Trump a misogynistic, hate monger and then saying but 'i'm going to pray for him' hypocritical double speak? Maybe, I don't know but since November 2016, I've never felt such sadness as I do with the current state of the country. I've cried at things the POTUS has said and at the way I imagine he has made people feel. I've been frightened, and frustrated, and felt hatred towards him and then felt guilty at feeling those things when I should be praying for him and the rest of our worlds leaders.

Though I still have some general negativity, Laras blog has opened my eyes. These issues affect all of us. Despite my personal safety net of race and income level, I (we) are all impacted by the culture he is nurturing in the white house.

For example, those women DT feels the need to sexualize are someones daughters, sisters, friends, wives, and mothers. The Muslims he wants to ban from the county may be the scientists who cure cancer. Those living in poverty, who he doesn't want to associate himself with could be the POTUS when they grow up.

We don.t have to support him  but we should pray for him and all of our leaders. Letters to our senators and congressman might help too.
