A kind follower reminded me of that '7 Cardinal Rules of Life' post going around, and they asked me if I would ever do my take on them (that being, a writerly take). Well, seeing as how I’ve been running a Writer Positivity series for over 100 posts, I thought it would be a fun chance to collect some of my favorite advice!
PS: The above are not meant to be taken as ‘literal’ rules for writing, but rather advice for leading the lifestyle of a writer~ ♥︎

I made another Fritz Haeg rug.
Another?! Wow! Nice work. And Sammy-approved!
I love how these rugs give a new life and visibility to parts of our past. I sometimes think of the shirts I loved when I was 10, or 14, or 25. It would be lovely to be able to walk on those shirts now and to feel still the softness and youness that clothes get when you spend a long time with them.
We live in a world that both worships consumer goods and must constantly dispose of them in order to justify the purchase of new ones. Fritz’s art assignment has made me think a lot about this, and about what we lose when we disconnect goods from the process of their making.
Also, it’s just nice to have a super-soft rug made of things you’ve endowed with love.
Sorry if that doesn’t make sense. I’m going to be pretty meningitis-y for a while.
I want to make this!
10 Children’s and YA First World War Books
Did you know that 100 years ago today was the start of the First World War? World War One began on 28th July 1914 and lasted until 11th November 1918. It’s one of history’s deadliest conflicts, but there’s few children’s and young adult books set during it (you’ll find much more about WWII). The centenary has meant that a whole host of children’s books surrounding WWI were published this year, so here’s a selection that I’ve come across, some read, some just on my wishlist. Head over to my other Pretty Books to find out more about these books.
