When ideas come floating through, we all have our ways of capturing them. The image of #1 New York Times bestselling author The Bloggess flying through the house yelling at her family to leave her alone makes my day. I’m gonna try this one and blame it on art. 💜What do you do when an idea’s floating—or barreling—through your beautiful brain? 💡To listen to all the gems from our #BeautifulWritersPodcast convo with the amazing Martha Beck, listen on apple podcasts: https://apple.co/3kVYQ84. Or go to www.beautifulwriterspodcast.com for all the links.🎧 Happy Sunday, y’all. xo#JennyLawson #MarthaBeck #Broken #TheWayofIntegrity #mentalhealth #irreverenthumor #beautifulwritersbook ...

Fantasy tree, right here! From the wildly creative bestselling author & bookstore owner, The Bloggess. It only took me five years to get her on the #beautifulwriterspodcast, but Lordy was she worth the wait! I loved hearing her and Martha Beck talk shop (and mental health). I think I'll post a quote graphic from their episode in a few minutes. Because, fun! Have you been to Jenny's Nowhere Bookshop in San Antonio? I so look forward to shopping there in person.#JennyLawson #MarthaBeck #Broken #nowherebookshop #TheWayofIntegrity #ILOVEwriters ... See MoreSee Less
