  1. I started reading the first book from The Once and Future King by T. H. White in the middle of February but life and work have stepped in and slowed my reading progress.[]
  2. Conversely, my morning reading continues apace. After finishing ‘On Writing’ and ‘Unsubscribe’, I have added ‘A Room of One’s Own‘ by Virginia Wolf.[]

Current status:

Working on my ‘inspiration list’. 💭 A great idea from Colin Devroe’s personal blogging tips.

He kindly commented on my most recent post where I had unearthed an old list of ten things I had learned after a year of blogging.

Sharing his own list of tips, all of which rang true, the following one struck an instant chord:

“In your notebook or notes app write down some topics you’d like to write about someday. Make it long. Like, 50 items. Don’t worry too much about what should be on it just start writing the list down. When you can’t think of anything to write about look at that list and simply pick any one at all and check it off.”

This is a great idea which aligns perfectly with my goal to write more this year. ✍️

Thanks Colin. 🤝
