an old dream is traveling between my ears
Hey y’all,

Here are 10 things I thought were worth sharing this week: 
  1. Jez Burrows is taking example sentences from the dictionary and turning them into Dictionary Stories.
  2. The British library has put a million images into the public domain.
  3. I enjoyed Jon Ronson's The Psychopath Test. (I also really liked his newest book, So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed.)
  4. So many people have written to me about this post I wanted to share it againHow to graciously say no to anyone.
  5. I re-read George Saunders’ short story “Sea Oak,” from an old favorite of mine, his 2000 collection, Pastoralia. (If you're new to his work, I recommend Tenth of December and his great commencement speech about kindness.)
  6. I bought my introverted wife this t-shirt.
  7. Fascinating charts of how movies have performed financially.
  8. On the virtues of brevity in writing.
  9. A few of my favorite bands â€” Destroyer, Beach House, and Yo La Tengo — have new albums out that are streaming on NPR. (Lately I've been listening to a lot of Joni Mitchell and The Isley Brothers.)
  10. I added the Hopscotch Design Festival in Raleigh, NC to my fall tour to promote The Steal Like An Artist Journal. (Here are all the dates we have booked so far.)

Austin Kleon is the author of Steal Like An Artist and other books.
