TY! @brainpicker Anne Lamott on writing, belonging, and how perfectionism kills creativity

TY! @brainpicker Anne Lamott on writing, belonging, and how perfectionism kills creativity | Fighting Poverty | Scoop.it

Anne Lamott's Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life (public library) is among my10 favorite books on writing – a treasure trove of insight both practical and profound, timelessly revisitable and yielding deeper resonance each time. Lamott adds to the collected wisdom of great writers with equal parts candor and conviction, teaching us as much about writing as she does about creativity at large and, even beyond that, about being human and living a full life – because, after all, as Lamott notes in the beginning, writing is nothing more nor less than a sensemaking mechanism for life:

Lou Salza's curator insight, November 25, 2013 9:48 AM

Wonderful piece about the importance of observing then writing about the world. In the process Maria Popova shines a light on the importance of belonging and the dangers of perfectionism--both areas of vulnerability for the students we serve. How can we use writing--particularly modern forms of scripting -(video, podcasts, soundtracts) to introduce students with print and language learning challenges to ways of communicating to themselves and reaching out to others, about their journey?-Lou

[Article] Overcoming poverty, one brick at a time

[Article] Overcoming poverty, one brick at a time | Fighting Poverty | Scoop.it

 

 

"Overcoming poverty is not a task of charity, it is an act of justice. Like Slavery and Apartheid, poverty is not natural. It is man-made and it can be overcome and eradicated by the actions of human beings. Sometimes it falls on a generation to be great. YOU can be that great generation. Let your greatness blossom.” 

Nelson Mandela
