i am a strong believer in the idea of to write well is to read well. there are times (aka, most days) that i have no idea what to write about, or what to say quite frankly. yet, these are days that i take that cue to put down my pen and read. and to read abundantly, and often, and deeply. to notice every phrase, not just in a novel, but in news articles, on blog posts, and on the back of my shampoo bottle. (okay, that last one may be a stretch, but you get the idea.) because, there is a lot we can learn from others and loads of inspiration & those hummm moments to be had. so i say, let's have them!
here are seven pieces of writing i have been inspired by recently. ergo, please stop reading this post and read some of these people's talented work. ah, i love fellow creatives.
one // dear american christians, by abigail green.
two// self care by kelsey marie.
in relationships via darling magazine
four // my bedroom studio: a metallic story by jordan stokke
five // a fall feast: friendsgiving via anthropologie blog
six // about a girl: arden wray via urban outfitters blog
seven // hyper island talks to jen gotch via bando blog (a video!)
who or what are you inspired by on a regular basis? and, do you think there is a correlation between reading and writing?
p.s. i used the word "ergo" in a piece of my writing. can you say "winning"? or, maybe just trying too hard.
