free advice: the gift for the writer in your life

“What do you want for Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa/Diwali*/Yule?”
…An agent, book auction and five-figure deal?

...there are plenty of other gifts for the writer in your life, and for you as the writer in someone else's life.

DO THIS: Buy their book, preferably from your local indie bookstore, but here at Brevity we also understand the desire to never leave the house again. Fortunately, Powell's also ships. Double points: buy two and give one as a present to someone else, or leave it in a Little Free Library. Already own it? Review their book online!

free gift: you won't like it

What if the best holiday gift you can give someone is to pry their phone from their hands and forcibly delete both Twitter and Facebook?
(Hey, social media is probably just a passing fad anyway.) 

...countless journalists have deleted their accounts, removed the apps from their phone, or simply walked away from the world of social media.

New WSJ Report Claims Saudi Crown Prince Is Real Buyer of $450.3M Leonardo

A day after the New York Times identified the buyer of “Salvator Mundi” as an obscure Saudi prince, the Wall Street Journal claims he was merely serving as a proxy for the country’s crown prince. SOURCE

Benjamin Sutton writes ...if MBS was indeed the buyer, his decision to loan it to the newly opened Louvre Abu Dhabi makes sense within the context of Saudi Arabia’s rapprochement with the United Arab Emirates (Abu Dhabi is the capital of the UAE).
