@wion omg. Pine nuts are worth more than gold! That was an amazing heist! Celebratory pesto?

@jakelacaze I once read something along the lines of writing through the 10,000 words of garbage to get to the good stuff, so I now look at the struggle as getting me that much closer to the reward

good post about how nerd communities' mass-adoption of the closed and proprietary Discord platform will inevitably lead to the long-term loss of (or loss of access to) mountains of special-interest group knowledge and community history

@lowbrow The Waterman's is solid but the jar is the real treat!

@lowbrow Waterman is out? Because it's erasable? That's my daily driver

@jakelacaze @lowbrow I've been hard-core since I saw this exhibit on Thoreau, who was amazingly dedicated to journaling: themorgan.org/exhibitions/thor

BTW, @jakelacaze, I loved your memory/journaling blog post. It was fantastic.

It's essential reading if you want to hear me go on about document formatting, which, sadly, is one of my passions.

@jakelacaze I forgot it was 12 weeks, too. I mostly liked the morning pages concept.

@jakelacaze it's amazing. But she has a concept called Morning Pages, where you journal three pages in the morning, to kind of empty your brain. It's a book about making art and the morning pages help to get the art out.

@jakelacaze I feel like handwritten journaling has changed my brain for the better. Have you read The Artist's Way?
