How to be a genius. Self-help for skeptics. A $75,000 toilet. An impossible act to follow.

Think different. Think positive. Here are a few ideas:

How to be a genius. Apple-speak: the secret training manual.

Train yourself to think positive. Self-help for skeptics.

4 yachts. 43 planes. A $75,000 toilet but he says he's not rich.

Bic makes pens especially for her. Slim for her delicate hands. Her choice of pink or purple. Reviewers go hilariously wild.
And they cost more.
(But they don't change color when you pee on them.)

An impossible act to follow. Christopher Hitchens' widow remembers. Carol Blue.


  1. Love your new blog, Ruth! That link to Putin's fortune led me to a story about Lindsay Lohan's $46,000 unpaid hotel bill, one about Brad and Angelina's toy shopping trip in France ... wait, aren't I supposed to be writing?

    1. Yes, Meghan, you're supposed to be writing. ;-)

      You're also supposed to be getting ideas about things to write about! For yourself & for your clients when they get stuck. And that's what this blog is for: to feed the hungry muse.

      So keep clicking. Sans guilt.

  2. I, too, love the new blog and the overall concept. It's nice to read about all these different topics in one place. I was so moved by the Christopher Hitchens story at Slate. Thanks for the sharing.

  3. Katherine—Thank you for the kind words. I hope writers will be able to use the thoughts & associations evoked by the various links to add emotional power to their work. I hope readers will be entranced & entertained by the links—which is, after all, what reading should arouse.
