You have to have a partner that’s committed to the work, and not just the idea of having a business. Everybody loves to think of the title, not a lot of people are willing to write the book.
This guy, from the Humans of New York Tumblr. Insert just about any partnership in place of “business” and it still rings true. Well put.

"Ghost Ads" is my new favorite term. Clever.

Of Man Cupboards and Writers’ Sheds

Use the right tool for the job, of course. Less obvious is how often the right space can influence productivity or positively contribute to the success of a job.

When we moved into our new home and I needed a private and quiet place to work and take phone calls, I commandeered the storage space below the basement stairs. I dubbed it the Man Cupboard.

About 6’ long and 3.5’ deep, it offered enough space to mount a length of oak countertop for desk space. I had a power source, two small lamps and a door that could shut behind me. It was a strangely productive workspace despite its appearance. 

So it shouldn’t have come as a surprise to me when I recently stumbled upon articles about writing rooms, writer “sheds” and the importance of designated writing spaces. Below are some links on the topic…

The best of Mr. Roper’s camera mugging (the most important gif set in all of history).

Before we all waited with bated breath for Arnold to ask, “Whatchu talking about?” we anxiously awaited a mugging Mr. Roper.

As long as I remember, I’ve been saving concert tickets and stuffing them into this Pac-Man tin. From my first adult-supervised concerts in middle school and high school, through the college years, to clubs and festivals in Colorado, California, Maine, New York, Massachusetts, and Washington. 
The tin was purchased sometime in 1981 during a K-Mart blue light special in South Plainfield, NJ. Other than my baseball card collection, it’s probably the oldest personal item I still have in my possession. Which means it’s moved around the country with me me about 15 times in the last 32 years, collecting concert memory after fuzzy concert memory.
