To Master One Skill, Learn Another
I'm not sure how authentic that saying (the title of this blog) is, but I have definitely found it expanding to momentarily stop writing and pursue other things.
Currently I am reading a lot of physics, astrophysics and astronomy, and had started watching a series I downloaded called "Cosmos" by Carl Sagan (who, by the way, is an amazing orator and guide into his subject)
I'm also reading a lot about the present day economy, present day struggles and conflicts like the all of those things we seem to know but not really regard like the Middle East and North African campaigns of America/Israel. This led me to re-look the history of the crusades and the things that came out of it. You would be surprised to know just how much history you have not learned about, but should have...
But the most surprising asset to my current writing was studying electricity and electrical circuits. By studying real, physical laws, it has helped me immensely in the crafting of psuedosciences and metaphysics. By studying these things you learn enough to create a world of substance while leaving enough room for wonder.
Right now I'm going to continue watching "Cosmos". This guy really is an amazing orator. I'd recommend the show to any kid. It should be used in classrooms. Seriously.
