Spring Cleaning

Springtime means it’s time to clean up and clean out. A task I love is rearranging my bookshelves. A few books will leave for the season to make room for those that I’ve stashed away.

One of my favorite books for writers is the classic The Elements of Style by William Strunk and E.B. White, author of Charlotte’s Web. The book is a gem. Strunk first published it in 1920; White, one of Strunk’s former students, revised the book in 1959. Strunk’s wit shines through the lessons, which makes his writing style guide an even more enjoyable read.

Be sure to follow me on Instagram to see the fun I’m having with flat lay photography, like the one above. I started experimenting with this style back in January, and it forces me to step up my creativity, especially since my goal is to post a new photo every day.
