Welcome, DCAD students and other random internet wanderers. Here are some links to blogs and books I talked about in my presentation if you want to check them out:

Bird By Bird, by Anne Lamott
A writer’s advice on how to get started writing despite the fear of sucking. She says, “We all have to start with a shitty first draft.”

She recommends a method of journaling called Morning Pages, where you write three pages every morning to clear out the cobwebs and help your creativity flow.
