In light of yesterday’s holiday, I thought I would share a few of my favorite things around the web these days.
- Amy Tan. I’ve been an avid reader of her blog for some time now. I can’t even remember how I initially stumbled on it, but I can say with certainty that most anything cool I know about design or tech tools has come from her tips (i.e. the photo block at the top of my New York post, my awesome mini moo business cards, the fun Pocketbooth app for my phone). She’s also incredibly positive and an awesome example of a life lived fully and creatively, so time here always feels well spent. Love.
- Kristin Nelson’s Pub Rants. This is another favorite I’ve followed for quite some time. If you are a writer planning on querying literary agents, you cannot afford not to go here. It’s all good stuff, but one of the best features is the actual letters from some of her clients with her commentary on why they worked (scroll down to find links on right hand side of the page). Love.
- Learning that Allison Winn Scotch was/is a huge fan of the TV show Felicity. Time of My Life was already one of my favorite novels, this article just made me love it (and the author) more. Plus now when I make a random reference to the show or one of its actors and my husband rolls his eyes I can say, “Whatever, New York Times bestselling author Allison Winn Scotch would totally understand!” Love.
Happy post-Valentine’s day Wednesday to all!
