My favorite writers/Books:

Robyn Davidson “Tracks”
The book that inspired me to write, just write. Because, breaking camels and walking across the desert is way harder.

www.jackkerouac.com/
Read it all, in high school, in grad school, in good times and bad, I keep coming back to Jack.
And this: “Write for the world to read and see your exact view of it.”
