Writing this blog is part creative experiment, part self-improvement project, part gut check. In many ways, I was inspired by my friend Mandy, who’s been blogging at mandyfish.com for years about writing, parenting, Buddhism, and what have you.
I’ve always admired her willingness to log the hours, her pluck at examining her inner life, her utter disregard for internet trolls. You should read her stuff, but only if reading interesting stuff is your bag.
“Slowing Down for the Creative Brain” is one of my favorite posts by her. It’s very thoughtful, yet incredibly breezy.
If you want to hear Mandy’s “low voice,” she was a recent guest on Episode 4 of the Girl’s Girls podcast. She is also finishing a memoir.
