Richard Brautigan’s “In Watermelon Sugar.” Love his poetry, but despite some really beautiful language and “chapters” (some of which read like prose poems), this book came up real empty for me. The grapes were more filling. #lunchreads

Life is a fun slide … I’m gonna ride  it all night long. Or whenever it opens. Or fuck it, I’m totally gonna drink wine and eat pizza until I pass out at 8:30 and not ride that slide at all because #adulthood

"The world we see today is the legacy of people noticing the world and commenting on it in forms that have been preserved … Of course it’s difficult to imagine that horses had no shape before someone painted their shape on the cave walls, but it is not difficult to see the world became a subtly larger, richer, more complex and meaningful place as a result." (So, yes, your lunch-grams make this world a more beautiful place, people! Or something like that.)

I write about this book all of the time, but Anne Lamott’s Bird by Bird has to be my favorite book on writing (and life, as the title notes).
It was recommended to me by a creative writing professor I had in college and it just makes you feel better about being a writer, and how hard it is.
Most of my philosophies on writing stem from this book! Check it!

"I can’t honestly say what role my writing plays physically. I just know that if it doesn’t break my fucking heart it probably ain’t worth pushing on anybody else, but maybe the ‘gritty realism’ has more to do with my memories of how incredibly fucked-up people can be, even good people, especially good people." - Junot Díaz
