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".

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!
