Things I found, things I am saving for winter

Hi there!

I found some treasures for you:

Ida, Always by Caron Levis

Grumpy Monkey

Grumpy Monkey is a delightful book full of cute illustrations. It's okay to be grumpy! And just because others want you to be happy, it does not mean you must be. The book recognizes that irritable feelings come and go. Sometimes the best solution for grumpiness is feeling validated.

“When your heart speaks, take good notes.”
​-Judith Exner

The key to always having something to write about is good note-taking.

Do things with passion, and your heart will speak often.

"Your brain is for having ideas, not for holding them." -David Allen

Keep a small notepad with you or on your phone, and you can write down your thoughts as you have them.

Make sure you include your sources so that you remember which ideas were original and which were not!

Over time you will have a fountain of resources for inspiration and to steal from when you need them.
