a little love, lately.

May 16, 2012

Next week, I’ll be taking a blog hiatus for ten days or so to spend some concentrated time with my little family.  Before I do, I wanted to share this article (“The Ultimate Guide for Writing Better than You Normally Do”) from McSweeney’s that I’ve seen bouncing around the web this week.  It features what I consider a winning balance of pithy writing tips and self-deprecation, bound nicely by boldfaced, capitalized headings.  Utility, mockery, and visual clarity — these are all things I love.

Speaking of love, I cannot stop listening to the Alabama Shakes.  If you haven’t heard them, take a listen and let me know what you think.  If you have heard them, tell me how much you love them, too.

My friend Katie Rogers got some love last week, also.  Through Kickstarter, she was able to exceed her fundraising goal in order to complete her documentary, CarLess in L.A.  I am so excited to see the finished product, and so happy for Katie.

This week, I hope you take the Shakes’ advice to just hang loose.  I also wish you the peerless joy of finding something new to love.  Thanks, as always, for showing up.

    I have been a lazy blogger the past two weeks because of work and family. Enjoy your time away with the family. Can’t wait to hear more when you get back!
