See What I Have Done by Sarah Schmidt

Across the Blogosphere:

I love essays about writing. This one explains why it’s difficult to call yourself a writer.

This essay argues that writers and by extension all artists should not give away their labor. Click here to read the entirety of the essay. I would be so interested to see what you think about.

I love this particular list. I have a commonplace book of my own in which I write down my favorite lines from the books I read. Click here to read the list.

I love adult fairy tales and I completely agree with this author. Click here to read the essay.

Across the Web:

I love historical fiction and I love to listen to podcasts. The History Chicks Podcast gives good information about female historical figures who show up in so many of the books I read. Click here for more information about the podcast. Click here to read more about the podcast.

I  love essays about writing, part III. Click here to read.

I have to admit up front that I’m not a fan of Justin Timberlake. So this rather scathing analysis of his attempt to rehabilitate his image by “going West, young man” is delicious (#JusticeforJanet). Click here to read it.

I love Food Network, but I am not a fan of Mario Batali or any of his shows. I’ve never watched any of them. But I did find it very odd/weird/inappropriate to include a recipe with his apology for his bad behavior. Click here to read about one woman’s thoughts while making the recipe.

Okay, that’s my reading life in March. How did your month go? Let me know in the comments below.
