What do you do to keep your ideas fresh and fun? I’m a lifelong learner, I guess. I could live at school and in the academic world. But I also know that I need constant input to keep sharp.
Conferences & Retreats. I am looking around the region to see where there are interesting and fun conferences and retreats. I need input. It’s not so much that I need to learn how-to do anything in particular; rather I need to see OTHER ways of doing things. I need someone to shove me out of my ruts and try something new. Try. That’s it. Just something new to try.
Books & Blogs. I’m always looking for new books, too, someone else’s take on this career of writing and publishing. There are so few right or wrong answers; so few real rules. (Like the Pirates’ Code: They are more like guidelines, anyway.)
Any great conferences to suggest to folks? Any great books that are helping you think about things in a new way? Any great new blogs to follow?
