Creativity Tweets of the Week — 03/04/11

Do you have tiger blood and Adonis DNA? Then you, like Charlie Sheen, can handle the Creativity Tweets of the Week. The links below on creativity and writing are only for F-18s that deploy their ordnance on fools and trolls. The inspirational links can only be handled by total bitchin’ rock stars from Mars. If your brain fires in a way that is, I don’t know, maybe not from this terrestrial realm, then you are ready for my roundup of the best links I tweeted this week. If you can’t handle it, then get out of my face with your corduroys.

CREATIVITY

INSPIRATION

  • Burnout is Beautiful,” Melissa Gorzelanczyk, guest post at Zen Habits: Full confession time. As much as I loved my last job running a nonprofit, after four years I burned out. This post reminded me I should forgive myself for burning out, and celebrate how it led me to my new path, pursuing an art-committed life.
  • Taking Care of Yourself Means Balance,” Rob Ruscher, Sisarina: I like #2, “socialize with live people,” and Sisarina is known here in the D.C. area for organizing #DCtweetup gatherings.
  • I’m Getting Published!!!!Julie Anne Lindsey, Musings from the Slush Pile: What is more inspiring than a writer who has finally escaped the “slush pile” and landed that coveted author contract?

WRITING

  • What I learned in 15 Minutes a Day…Judy Clement Wall, Fear of Writing: Can you write at least 15 minutes a day for an entire month? Judy discovers it’s harder than she thinks.

    Please. If you have llama blood, kindly move on.
  • How to Prep to Write a Novel,” Charlotte Rains Dixon: Just like you should stretch before exercise, you need proper prep before jumping into your writing.
  • Is Marketing Non-Stop and All-Consuming for all Authors?Jody Hedlund: A comparison of marketing burdens for traditional-published and self-published authors. Some good thoughts in the comments section.

A final word of advice from Charlie Sheen, self-described “high priest Vatican assassin warlock” and star of unforgettable films such as Hot Shots! and Hot Shots! Part Deux: “Stay away from the crack, which I think is pretty good advice, unless you can manage it socially.”

  1. ROTFLMAO!!! OK maybe not the floor, but the same action, sitting on the couch. That. Was. AWESOME. I needed that good belly laugh after a really serious, “deep” conversation I just had. Good on ya.

    Now I need to get reading! πŸ™‚
