There is a photograph coming at you every few seconds, and hype is the lingua franca. It has become hard to stand still, wrapped in the glory of a single image, as the original viewers of old paintings used to do. The flood of images has increased our access to wonders and at the same time lessened our sense of wonder. We live in inescapable surfeit.

— Teju Cole, from ‘Finders Keepers’ in Known and Strange Things

If you're an WRITER or aspiring blogger, I highly recommend doing these 3 things:

1. Read Do the Work by Steven Pressfield
2. Create your own blog and publish something new every day (read my post on how to set up a FREE blog on Wordpress).
3. Buy an All-Access Pass from Masterclass to learn from the best writers in the world.
