Jack Kerouac’s Essential Rules for Writing: It Still Works, Man.
These are the rules to write by, to live by, escape the penitentiary of the mediocre into the wilder realm of raw living experience, Whitman’s sun burning warmth through the skin of our beings.
These are the rules to guide by, to breath by, to masturbate and fornicate by.
Rules to die by.
These are the rules, the markers of life as it is lived as it can only be truly known.
Believe it until it’s no longer true.
