Things I Like From the Internet

Posted on

Sometimes, you just need random inspiration or advise or distraction from the world.  Reading is good, drinking is fun, yoga, running, meditation, colouring, drawing.  Whatever you use to recharge or de-stress, sometimes its just nice to lose yourself on the internet. Pinterest, reddit, social media, Netflix, there is so much to chose from, and, so I thought I would collect some of my favorites (articles, websites, people, books, etc) and share them with you, for those moments when you need to zone out.  Some of them have nothing to do with art and are just cool or funny.   So sit back and grab some coffee, whiskey, wine or tea and enjoy!

Awesome Pinterest boards

Posted on

Hi!
OK, I thought for those of you looking for a little inspiration you could check out my Pinterest boards. I looooove me some Pinterest. 💛💛
For Writing
For Art
For Artwork that is more about fantasy worlds/characters etc. I love this for inspiring my fantasy writing.
Art Tips
Business of Art

I also follow some great people who are chalk full of advice or are just darn interesting.

Susan Dennard – Writer of quite a few popular YA books, but I love her emails, she is so honest about writing and always gives great tips.

Next up is Wil Wheaton. I just love his honesty on writing, acting, art, creating and depression/anxiety. I suffer from social anxiety so what he posts really resonates. Anyway, just a great guy to follow. Also his podcast is awesome too.

It’s good to keep your mind creative and sharp, so I try to do writing prompt excersises. I follow Promptuarium, a site that has hundreds of writing prompts. I try to write hard for 20mins to 1/2 hr using one of the prompts. Just to give my brain a workout. I got this idea from Susan Dennard who wrote about how she’s training her brain to write better.

I’m sure that you have heard about Austin Kleon and his Show Your Work book/idea. It’s brilliant. Follow him.

If you have some awesome Pinterest boards or fav’s you follow, let me know!!
