We must keep going

Hello there
Yesterday our postperson popped my pre-order of Austin Kleon’s new book through the letterbox. I immediately took a picture and posted it on Instagram. Because that’s what we do now. 
This was my caption. 
Hooray! My pre-order arrived early. Living through the shitshow of Brexit, never have I needed this more. You should all read @austinkleon other books too. He knows his onions.
I often link to Austin Kleon’s blog posts but it was his first book, Steal Like an Artist that got me hooked. It’s not easy to convey a lot with few words and a handful of illustrations, but he really can do it like very few other people writing on the internet. 
Anyway, his new book is called Keep Going and it’s about how we can maintain our creativity and desire to keep making stuff when the world around is going completely bonkers.
I continue to struggle with this, so I’m really looking forward to getting stuck in. I’ll report back. 
And that’s it. Don’t forget there’s loads of good stuff in the archive. Feel free to share this email far and wide.
Iain
PS I haven’t forgotten your stickers. Promise.

Some Creative Advice For Your Younger Self
H.C. Marks
There’s a lot of shit #amwriting advice on this hellsite. Here’s one you should ignore if you see it: “Write every day.”

You don’t have to. You’re still a writer if you can only find time on weekends and holidays. Or if you take December off. Or if you haven’t written in a year.
