We opened the week with a retrospective of Prince and what he can inspire all of us to do.
Wednesday brought a post I’ve been wanting to write for a while, about the fear of failure, and why that is 1) such BS, but also 2) such convincing BS.
Aaaaand on Friday, we closed out with a few new faves.
Some great stuff from around the web this week:
- Apple, cheddar, and cornmeal waffles. *drools helplessly*
- Kelsey McKinney makes the very good point that artistic endeavors are rarely achieved solo.
- I hope you’re ready to get a little bit uncomfortable, because this article makes a really, really good point: we need a decolonized, not a “diverse,” education
- Guy Gavriel Kay (one of my favorites) discusses his latest work and his process
- For those of you who didn’t already know, I’m writing the story for a video game! To see it in action, head on over to twitch for a replay of Tera’s playthrough
- We have round two of the Rabid Puppies craziness going on in this year’s Hugo Awards, and Chuck Wendig has a take on it – two takes, really – that resonate with my own dualistic thinking about this. (After that, you can check out John Scalzi’s take, and then George RR Martin’s.)
- As always, if you’d prefer to have these roundups delivered via email, you can sign up for the mailing list here.
How’s everyone’s weekend going?
