Five on Friday

1. I love how Tayari Jones treats her writing self with such kindness and compassion. And I appreciate how generous she always is in sharing the ups and downs of the creative process.

2. A beautiful description of the morning writing process by Roxana Robinson.

3. A wise and thoughtful interview with the wise and thoughtful David Edenbach. His latest collection will definitely make my reading list this year.

4. 36 ideas for boosting creativity.

5. The lives they lived.
