Jim Murdoch presents Music to write to (part one) posted at The Truth About Lies, saying, “Some people like to write with music in the background, others need complete silence. There is no right way but if you do find music helps you focus then you might find this list of lesser known modern classics by Scottish writer Jim Murdoch worth investigating further.

Writing Resource

Byteful Travel presents How to Create a Hit in Any Artistic Medium posted at Byteful Travel, saying, “Believe it or not, I have absolutely no idea which of my works will become popular on the web and which will be ignored. And if you’re honest with yourself, you don’t either. Sure, some people invest lots of money in SEO, but when creative work is approached with search engines in mind first and people second, it too often becomes only a temporary delight and doesn’t help you grow your audience or your credibility. So how do you create a “hit”? Here’s the secret: You have to be prolific before you can enter the magic.”

Laura Dawson presents Conquer Headlines and Shine! posted at Design Quotes Digital Marketing Blog ~ Design Quotes Blog ~ Digital Marketing Blog, saying, “Writing great content is enough of a challenge in itself, without the possibility that it may not even be read – all because your headline sucks. Learn how to put a new spin on old headline formulas.”

Theresa Torres presents 6 Tips for Marketing Yourself Online as a Freelancer | Lisa Mason posted at Lisa Mason, saying, “Marketing yourself online as a freelance writer is a great way to get yourself known, find helpful contacts, and land good-paying jobs. Here are some tips to guide you.”

Zen

Byteful Travel presents Japanese Tea Garden Review: Home of San Francisco’s Hidden Sea Monster posted at Byteful Travel, saying, “San Francisco, CA – At first glance, the Japanese Tea Garden nestled within Golden Gate Park seems innocent enough. Birds frolic in its ponds. Verdant trees tower high above your head. And everything seems to be at perfect peace. At first glance, at least. What you don’t know is that the Japanese Tea Garden is home to a disguised Sea Monster, hidden in plain sight. And somehow, it’s still a place of Zen.”

February 14, 2012

Happy Valentine’s Day and welcome to the February 14, 2012 edition of Lovely Words. Unfortunately, I have to announce Lovely Words will be going on hiatus until April 23, 2012.

Inspiration

 
Tom Hass presents Dare to Build an Empire? posted at Personal Hack, saying, “I?m building my empire. No I?m not talking about a business empire like the Fords, Hiltons or the Trumps. No disrespect, one can learn all sorts of things from them. I?m talking about a new kind of empire. One built on freedom, responsibility, craziness, randomness, and hard work.”
 
Byteful Travel presents Why Coit Tower is one of San Francisco’s Best-Kept Secrets posted at Byteful Travel, saying, “A sane person would have taken a bus or a car up to San Francisco’s Coit Tower, but I didn’t. Instead, I walked the wild San Francisco streets up to the top of Telegraph Hill. To scale that 83 meter hill, I even walked up stairs at points; and when I finally reached the Coit Tower parking lot, I was rewarded with a view of the bay and Alcatraz Island in the distance. But little did I know I was about to get my socks knocked off. (high-rez photos included)”

I loved spending time with them; and my grandmother, who grew up in France, was especially warm and loving. Just being around her was a comforting feeling. My grandfather was different.”

Isabel Anders presents Dancing Through Time and Tradition | BlogHer posted at BlogHer, saying, “Attuning oneself to the rhythms of the year by way of Scripture and holy tradition produces a certain kind of dance—of the mind and spirit.

David Leonhardt presents Proud to Be a Grinch [humour alert] posted at Self-Help Happiness Blog, saying, “It was my first meeting of “GA”. This is not AA (Alchoholics Anonymous). It is not even AAA (American Automobile Association). It is GA…Grinches Anonymous. This is roughly how the meeting went.”
 
Erin Pavlina presents Cultivating Command and Leadership posted at Erin Pavlina – Spiritual Wisdom for Conscious People, saying, “Are you a leader or a follower? Are you willing to step up and take command when the chips are down? Or are you content to let someone else lead? Can you bear the responsibility that comes with command?

Writer’s Resource

 
Byteful Travel presents How to Assemble & Host a Well-Crafted Blog Carnival in 7 Steps posted at Byteful Travel, saying, “Blog Carnivals are a really smart way to get the word out about your work, no matter what you write about.

But actually hosting a blog carnival can complex and isn’t always an easy feat, especially if you’re hosting one with lots of entries. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Why? Because I have developed a great system to assemble a blog carnival in an eloquent way, no matter the size. My own blog carnival, the BTBC, has gotten a lot of praise, so I’m happy to now help others with what I’ve learned in getting to that point.”

You might gasp or gaze at it for a while, right? What if I said you could see not one, but thousands of roses like this, completely free of charge? Amazingly, all of this is a reality at the International Rose Test Garden. That’s right, within Portland’s Washington Park, this world-famous rose breeding facility produces some of the most incredible roses you could ever imagine. The colors alone will blow you away. (Tons of high-rez photos included.)

What Inspires You

 
O.C. Heaton presents What would you rather have: a penny or £1 million? posted at A Rush of Green, saying, “If you have a goal, you may not reach it after thirty days, three months or even three years, but if you keep chipping away at it, eventually the power of compound interest will kick in and all that foundation effort will deliver tangible results. In my case this is a completed novel, which, during the writing process can seem distant. My first novel is proof of this: it took me ten years to write The Human Race, but I kept going. Word by word, sentence by sentence, paragraph by paragraph, page by page it was eventually finished – and published.”

Well, according to Nicholas Hardiment, the serial philanderer and highly successful author in the film Tamara Drewe, we are. After watching the film on Saturday night, I immediately dismissed the incendiary statement. What self-respecting writer wouldn’t? But alas, the words seem to have stuck with me and after five days I have made a U-turn.”

e.m. cadwaladr presents Martha posted at e.m. cadwaladr, saying, “Philosophy regarding pigeons and other bipeds.”

You may be thinking that a challenge buddy is like an accountability partner, but there is a difference. With an accountability partner (or group) you indicate what goal you’re trying to achieve…”

Lovely Words Vol. 30

January 31, 2011

Welcome to the January 31, 2011 edition of lovely words. This is the final post for Lovely Words and Writing as a Sacred Art for a while as they are both going on hiatus. I find that I am blessed with so much work that it is difficult to find balance and do everything to the best of my ability. Therefore, I choose to focus on a few projects and do them well, rather than, spread myself thin. I want to personally thank each and every reader who has supported LW and WASA; and there are not enough words to articulate my heartfelt gratitude to the writers who have contributed to LW. May you all have blessed and peaceful lives. Check back periodically for post, also WASA will be out in book form with a lot of extra material added in the not so distant future. Once again thank you so very much for your support, I hope everyone is encouraged to begin the practice of cathartic writing. Please enjoy this edition of Lovely Words.

He introduced me to Pike’s Place Market in downtown Seattle. (In fact, it was his idea.) Pike’s Market is one of the most famous places in Seattle, if not *the* most famous; and it’s right on the waterfront. The market is one of the oldest continually operated public farmers’ markets in the United States. Basically, they had EVERYTHING.”
