3.1 Tara and Michelle - On How To Beat The Reader's Block!
We are back with season 3! Tara and Michelle discuss what creativity means to them and how they have developed small habits or rituals to help them be more relaxed and productive.
Tara and Michelle’s first creative act was writing fanfiction! Tara wrote Enid Blyton fanfiction while Michelle was inspired by R. L. Stine’s Goosebumps series. They discuss why reading newspaper articles, short stories, and newsletters is as important as reading books. Michelle sets annual reading goals instead of resolutions. Tara uses cooking and yoga to inspire her creativity. How did they start their own newsletters? How to get out of a reading slump? And is reading a form of self-care? Tune in to find out!
