Friday Fare is where I post links to the random articles that have resonated with me during the week. Sometimes they make me smarter, sometimes they make me hungry … sometimes they have to do with writing and sometimes they are just plain random.
The Interwebs were just plain kind this week with entertainment:
This advice from the creator of Calvin and Hobbes was much appreciated.
I’d watch Meryl Streep read children’s books, it’s no surprise that I devoured this article from Vanity Fair about her experience making “Kramer vs. Kramer.” I am also once again reminded that I need to re-watch some of the classics from the 1970s.
Lemon Cream Cake. Because … well, cake!
Finally, another beautiful post from Jerry, my mentor.
Listening to: This mashup of classic movie clips and Mark Ronson’s Uptown Funk … glorious.
Reading: My reading has been a little crazy lately. I’ve been digging into some books for research purposes. Also been reading to see how some of the “masters” pull of particular concepts in their fiction. (My fellow Minnesotan Jess Lourey recently wrote a post on how to read like a writer … very helpful!)
Fiction Update: I encapsulated the kickoff of edits to “After Life” (AL) in this post. Edits are ongoing, I’ve identified what I need to work on during the next round of writing and am preparing for a chunk of time on Sunday when I can hopefully dig in and make some meaningful progress to start off my actual editing work.
Happy weekend, friends!
