Jack Kerouac: Writing Lesson
Kerouac’s “Belief & Technique for Modern Prose.” I keep coming back to Jack Kerouac for inspiration. He was kind of a Buddha for the Beat Generation (except that he, uh, drank himself to death at an early age… oops). He cultivated both spontaneity and craft. He became an icon to thousands of young people with road fever but could have equally been a role model for the serious pursuit of any skill (pile of notebooks, endless revisions — except for the, uh, methamphetamine part). Very Zen.
