I'll also continue to update these so if you have ones to add, please let me know.
To start, I've appreciated this article from the New York Times, which talks about languishing to help explain the "blah" feeling that's been particularly heightened by the pandemic.
POC-related mental health resources
Websites and Instagram accounts I've appreciated (with a description of their account)
Thinking about the relationship between media, trauma, and care
Recognizing the impact of videos and trauma from watching violence and death, utilize your settings and turn off the functions so that videos do not automatically play. And of course, please do not share any videos and consider using content warnings for links that may use automatic video playing.
This page includes tips, advice, and ideas put together by yours truly (hence the "me"). For more, check out "OUT-SOURCED" for curated resources that I find helpful, or scroll down for my WRITING BOOKSHELF. If you're looking for guides, check out TEMPLATES.
Writing is a craft. To sharpen mine, I read a fair amount of books, articles, excerpts, and more. At least for the books, here are some I've enjoyed.
And if you're looking to buy a book, support local bookstores, and/or buy via Bookshop.
And if you want to support the content I create on this site, you can "buy me a cup of coffee" through the button. Thank you~
