A handful of links for a rainy day.

Amazing self-portraits by writers. Henry Miller drew his in 1946.



The story of how the Kindle came to be, from an insider’s point of view.

An article on a blog about the history of makeup that discusses whether cosmetics of the past poisoned the women who wore them with ingredients like lead and mercury.

  1. First off I would like to say excellent blog!
    I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.

    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head
    prior to writing. I have had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.

    I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost
    just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips?
    Thank you!

  2. The hoestny of your posting is there for all to see
