I just finished reading a very inspirational book, Steal Like an Artist: 10 Things Nobody Told You About Being Creative by Austin Kleon. It was just the kick in the pants that I needed right now.
I learned that I'm doing the right things to hone my skills.
I learned that I'm collecting and not hoarding, and made me feel a lot better about the sheer number of books and bits of this and that which have become my array of prized possessions.
I also figured out that the last 2 months of vegging in front of the TV was some needed downtime to let my brain recharge and I'm hoping that I'll become energized and productive in my after-the-day-job time again.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who aspires to accomplish things.
