Study Hacks on the “Deliberate Rise of Stephen King”

The following is an obvious statement: Those of you reading this post probably enjoy reading other blogs too. To prove my theory correct, I would like to submit to you a new blog to add to your reading repertoire.

Cal Newport, the author of Study Hacks, is a Computer Scientist and Assistant Professor at Georgetown who is interested in “why some people end up leading successful, enjoyable, meaningful lives, while so many others do not”. His posts are filled with real life examples of people who have made it in their fields and on techniques for improving one’s productivity. I think it is important as an artist to find inspiration and models of business outside of our narrow field. That is why I really pay attention when I am given advice by a successful person in any of the creative arts–regardless of their medium.

Below is a great post about Stephen King and how he never allowed rejection to derail his goal of becoming a successful writer. Very inspiring!
