Here are 4 things I want to share this week:

I recently finished reading the His Dark Materials trilogy, by Philip Pullman. I read a lot more non-fiction than fantasy, but I couldn’t put this one down. I want to be like Lyra when I grow up — she’s fearless, empiracle, and determined; she stands up for herself and defends those who are oppressed.

This essay on the daily constitutional of generating material as a writer is well worth the read. If you need to flush writer’s block down the toilet, read this.

Catharsis of the week: “On The Frame,” by Beta Radio has just the right mix of lonesomeness and nostalgia, and finds an unlikely intersection between nihilism and hope. Catharsis Rating: 2 out of 5 tears.

I spent 5 days writing, at a cabin in the woods, with the book Hold Your Own, a collection of poems by Kate Tempest. Couldn’t have chosen a better companion to be holed up with.
