They sound like good ideas to me!
From our dear friend Dawn Knox:
I’ve got a story in a women’s mag this week and they selected me to be their Writer of the Week. Not sure why they picked me but it was very nice they did. It’s here if you want to see. https://www.thepeoplesfriend.co.uk/2019/05/06/writer-of-the-week-dawn-knox/

At least the first one sounds interesting. If starting way too early in the day!
Obviously some of the authors are winners, but regardless of that, I copypasted the list of winners and nominees into my list of books to read.
And you should, too, if you like fantasy.
“To gain mastery over reality is to create a mythology worth living for. Your head is the space from which all meaning derives. It is the shaman’s – and writer’s/artist’s/musician’s [my addition] – role to shine light on that meaning in order, like a wind-up doll, to make you go.” – Thomas T. Hills
The Truth of Fact, the Truth of Feeling by Ted Chiang — Subterranean Press
“People are made of stories. Our memories are not the impartial accumulation of every second we’ve lived; they’re the narrative that we assembled out of selected moments. Which is why, even when we’ve experienced the same events as other individuals, we never constructed identical narratives: the criteria used for selecting moments were different for each of us, and a reflection of our personalities. Each of us noticed the details that caught our attention and remembered what was important to us, and the narratives we built shaped our personalities in turn.”
