Mick D Kirkov's insight:


Penelope's curator insight, January 31, 2014 6:03 PM


It's Famous Author Friday! Since we are unable to talk with this famous, long-gone author to pick his brain, the second best thing is to mull over his writings. Fellow writers were always asking Author Jack Kerouac how he did what he did. So he set down 30 essentials in something he called “Belief and Technique for Modern Prose."


Jack Kerouac is author of the landmark "On the Road," and who some believe, helped usher in the 1960s counter-culture movement.


Some make sense, and others well....


1)   Scribbled secret notebooks, and wild typewritten pages, for yr own joy

2)   Submissive to everything, open, listening

3)   Try never get drunk outside yr own house

4)   Be in love with yr life

5)   Something that you feel will find its own form

6)    Be crazy dumbsaint of the mind

7)   Blow as deep as you want to blow

8)    Write what you want bottomless from bottom of the mind

9)    The unspeakable visions of the individual

10)  No time for poetry but exactly what is

11)  Visionary tics shivering in the chest

12)  In tranced fixation dreaming upon object before you

13)  Remove literary, grammatical and syntactical inhibition

14)  Like Proust be an old teahead of time

15)  Telling the true story of the world in interior monolog

16)  The jewel center of interest is the eye within the eye

17)  Write in recollection and amazement for yourself

18)  Work from pithy middle eye out, swimming in language sea

19)  Accept loss forever

20)  Believe in the holy contour of life

21)  Struggle to sketch the flow that already exists intact in mind

22)  Don't think of words when you stop but to see picture better

23)  Keep track of every day the date emblazoned in yr morning

24)  No fear or shame in the dignity of yr experience, language & knowledge

25)  Write for the world to read and see yr exact pictures of it

26)  Bookmovie is the movie in words, the visual American form

27)  In praise of Character in the Bleak inhuman Loneliness

28)  Composing wild, undisciplined, pure, coming in from under, crazier the better

29)  You're a Genius all the time

30)  Writer-Director of Earthly movies Sponsored & Angeled in Heaven
