Shapes of Conscious

With this sketchbook, I’ve been challenging my creativity by starting first with a simple shape, drawn without the end goal in mind. Once the shape is drawn, I go about filling it with a character that develops a story of its own. The idea here is to get out of my own way, to let the drawing develop itself without forcing it into a desired narrative or purpose.

e-Staff Picks: The Center of Everything by Linda Urban
Amy says: “Another thoughtful, poignant novel for tweens by rising star Linda Urban, this beautiful story of grief, donuts (DONUTS!), and the power of wishing starts out light but has you tearing up by the end (which comes far too soon). Heroine Ruby Pepperdine is a character of surprising emotional depth, and listening in on her thoughts is a real pleasure. Besides, it’s hard not to love any book that discusses A Wrinkle in Time, young love, Wikipedia, and the history of fried dough all in the same chapter. Aren’t you craving Peter Pan just thinking about it?”
What are you waiting for?

I will always be grateful for my 40 minute commute for the uninterrupted reading time it grants me. Sitting, standing, crammed in a corner or alone with a car to myself - when I’m on my way somewhere, I’m never without a book. I’ve lived in two other cities, and in neither of them was I able to get locked into such an enjoyable transit routine. Either it’s something about the speed and rhythm of the stops, the dependable ambient noise (ever time your page-turns to the “ding ding” of the doors?), or the potentially narcotic fumes the MTA pumps into the cars, but I can do some seriously heavy literary lifting while riding the rails.

Whoa. The MLA has officially devised a standard format to cite tweets in an academic paper. Sign of the times.

Ohh, this is interesting! Reading bibliographies could be quite fun if the entirety of all the cited tweets have to be replicated.

Here’s how to cite a tweet in an MLA formatted paper. Although, I wonder what professors/teachers are going to say about this.
