“We needs must love the highest when we see it.”
– Alfred, Lord Tennyson
* I was intrigued by this blog, Birth of a Playwright, by a writer chronicling her attempt to write her first full-length play in 266 days (typical length of human gestation). A happiness project! She touches on many familiar happiness challenges, like “If I love my work, why do I sometimes find it hard to work instead of watch TV?” “How do you ‘follow your gut,’ as so often advised, if your gut gives conflicting advice?” “How do you handle it when you create something you’re very proud of, and others poke holes in it?” etc.
* In a book group? If you’d like a copy of the reading-group discussion guide for The Happiness Project, just email me at grubin [at] gretchenrubin [.com]. (Sorry to write in that odd way; trying to thwart spammers.) Just write “reading group guide” in the subject line. I’ll send it right off.
