Today has been a strange day to say the least. I am busily working on my novel. I have constructed 13,000 words over the past eight days and only seem to be speeding up. I hope to be done with the rough draft before the end of May. Because of this, I am spending less time working on content that I will be able to upload.
Instead, I decided I would share some of my values and influences. The video above is about anti-consumerism or minimalism. I have been greatest influenced by videos and books with this message over the last several years. If you have never read “The Gospel According to Larry,” please read it. I have moved from more than 1,000 possessions to less than 550 over the past few months. It is a freeing expereince.
“The more you own, the more it owns you.”
Also, I attended a poetry critique yesterday. I hope to update over the week ahead with new poetry using some of the tactics I learned at this meeting. I feel like it is one area of writing that I have not practiced all that much. Hopefully I will build my craft over time.
