Resources/Advice-Stuff to Listen to While Drawing
This is a series of journals that I've wanted to make for a while, just to document all the things that have been of use to me and might be of use to others. No one has to read these, though! These can just sit here for future reference if anyone needs them.

Audio Books:
Audio books are one of my favorite things to listen to while drawing! They are several hours long and—if the book is interesting—they will keep you motivated and focused for long periods of times.
My favorite Audio versions of books are: 1) ANYTHING by Jon Acuff because he is a hilarious person and he reads the books himself, 2) The Lunar Chronicles, 3) The Hunger Games, 4) The Everlasting Man (Narrator: John Robbins), 5) Orthodoxy (Narrator: Simon Vance), and 5) Mere Christianity (Narrator: Geoffrey Howard).
Those are my favorite audio versions of books. I like their readers a lot. There are other books I like that didn't have great adaptations (Cheesy 90's background music! :noes:) or that I can't listen to f

This is a quick write up of the very basic tools and materials you will need in order to get started working with Polymer Clay. I’ve also included some extra items you can purchase later on once you’re more committed to sticking with the craft; these are more expensive items I wouldn’t suggest until you’re sure you enjoy using polymer clay.
Nothing fancy here - if you want the basic basics, this is all you’ll need:
1. Polymer Clay
Where to purchase: Michael’s, Jo-Ann Fabrics, Hobby Lobby, and online. Check out your local craft store and they will most likely carry it.
The best way to decide if you like polymer clay is to pick up one of Sculpey’s clay sampler packs. It contains quite a few colors of 1 oz Sculpey blocks and really is the best bang for your buck when you’re just starting out. If you’d rather purchase the 2 o

8 Tips for Becoming Self-motivated to Write
8 Tips for Becoming Self-motivated to Write
Anybody Can Write a Novel
Chapter 1 “Beginning to Write” – Section 4 “Self-Discipline”
With Links to Supplementary Material
I've talked before about dealing with writer's block, and different techniques for conquering it. But how do we write diligently and with self-motivation, given the overwhelming amount of distraction around us and the difficulty in becoming self-motivated? Today, I'm going to give some of the strategies that I have found to help me the most, so that you can try them or even modify them to fit your own personal strengths and vulnerabilities.
Tip 1: Identify the problem.
To solve any problem, you must be self-aware enough to understand it. Perhaps you are distracted by the overwhelming amount of content on the internet, by social media, by texts and phone ca
