Tapestry Book: deep work & inside out

Inspirations From Writers

Fascinating ways to read, write, research, highlight, retrieve, pick, proofread, find a balance between productivity and presence, use tech hacks online and offline – as a writer—for example, and reader. I tuned in the conversation between Tim Ferris and Maria Popova to listen and take notes to improve my writing over time.

I found in my archive of highlights some great and helpful writing advice curated by Maria Popova.

“Alongside these edifying essentials, Hemingway offered young Samuelson some concrete writing advice. Advocating for staying with what psychologists now call flow, he begins with the psychological discipline of the writing process (…)”

Other inspiring thoughts from writers and bloggers.

“Blogging isn’t just a way to organize your research — it’s a way to do research for a book or essay or story or speech you don’t even know you want to write yet. It’s a way to discover what your future books & essays & stories & speeches will be about.” — Cory Doctorow


“I write all kinds of things, and keep random journals of notes, thoughts, ideas, and bad diagrams. I keep them all for the same reason Austin and others keep theirs. To find what I didn’t know I was looking for. That inspiration. That connected dot. That story I want to tell next.

This is an excellent reminder that we should take time to reflect on what we’ve thought previously, as it might be more applicable to what we’re thinking today than it was when we wrote it down.” — Brian Dusablon


“(…) Through the magic of the written medium we become privy to the thoughts inside another person’s skull. Neuroscientists consider the brain to be a universe in itself. Writers, in that sense, then become explorers providing a glimpse into a place that is largely unknown.

Good writers, of course, do much, much more than that. They mine their emotions, exhibit deep states of empathy and manage to connect with their readers at more than just one level. A non-fiction book then can answer a pressing, practical question, can offer suggestions that help with real world problems, can educate, inform, amaze and entertain all at the same time. The same list, in reverse, can be applied to great fiction.” — David Amerland
