“5 Reasons I Don’t Write”

Writing is a beneficial means of communication and it can be a real gift to others. It can be a therapeutic tool for processing, a fun hobby and a varied, money-making side hustle. Because it’s creative pursuit, however, we can often have a lot of resistance toward it. Depending on how supportive important people in our past have been, even if you had the best creative writing teacher, there might have been one negative comment from an influential adult that set you against writing as a worthwhile use of your time and effort. Whether it is for your entertainment or others’, or to communicate information, your writing can be a gift.

Mama deer came bounding into a yard when she heard a 5-week-old human baby crying

Mama instincts can be strong, regardless of species. That's why breastfeeders will often have a milk letdown reflex when they hear a baby crying, even if it isn't their own. It's why we get stories of cross-species caregiving when a baby animal gets abandoned. And it's why a video of a mama deer running to a crying human baby's rescue is so endearing. (Please high-five me for not typing "endeering.")

From Slow and Steady Progress to Fast & Furious Blockbusters, Vin Diesel's Net Worth Is Massive

There is more to Vin Diesel than the Fast & Furious franchise, but we wouldn’t blame you if you know him mostly as his Fast alter ego, Dominic Toretto. However, he’s also a producer, a musician and a director who got his first big break from a huge movie icon. He’s also a private guy who enjoys a relatively modest lifestyle, so it’s no wonder that all the zeroes in Vin Diesel’s net worth will probably shock you.

A writer turns her eye on writers …

Every so often there’s a television show that’s worthy of “binge-watching.” I felt HBO’s “The Undoing” was one. Starring Hugh Grant and Nicole Kidman, it’s a diabolical story of a New York City murder that unravels the marriage of a wealthy couple. It was adapted from Jean Hanff Korelitz’s novel “You Should Have Known.” I hated to see that series end, but, fortunately, Korelitz has a new book out titled “The Plot” (Celadon Books), which is as readable as “The Undoing” was watchable. A twisty tale of literary paranoia, in “The Plot” the author turns her writer’s eye on writers themselves and produces a witty thriller nightmare.
