On weekends, I like to do things a little differently. Enjoy!
Susan Ariel Rainbow Kennedy (aka SARK) is one of my mentors, a very inspirational friend who I’ve never yet met. Her books are the very embodiment of joy, and her latest work, Juicy Pens, Thirsty Paper, is no exception. I read this book on the day it came out.
SARK’s book is an inspiration to writers, to those of us who are called to create. She knows how hard it can be to actually get work done, and some of the things that we put in our own way. This book has practical solutions for those difficult times, including a couple of handy charts. Now there’s a reference for each specific situation where a person could get stuck, with a prescription for fixing the problem. I like that.
I also like to hear SARK’s own story. She’s mentioned it in other books—I’ve read them all—but it’s helpful to have a reminder that a person can do what they’re called to do even when the world would rather have them filling out forms somewhere or working at a truck stop. SARK decided she was a writer and an artist, and she just started doing it. She even lives in a magic cottage. I want a life like that, and I plan to attain it.
I loved this book, and you might also enjoy it or her other works. Check it out!
See you tomorrow!
