I’m currently reading a couple of Kinsey’s recommendations, so in the meantime, I thought I’d pass along a couple literature-related twitter feeds for recommendation:
Guy In Your MFA (@GuyInYourMFA)
Profile summary: “Two re-writes away from finishing the Great American Novel. Maybe about a 20-something in Brooklyn?”
Laugh at this guy, so that you don’t kill the actual guy in your MFA (or writing group).* Also, at www.guyinyourmfa.com, if you aren’t into Twitter. He has a buzzfeed quiz on how many books by white men have you read, and for the first time, I was proud to have read as few as I had.
The Worst Muse (@WorstMuse)
Profile summary: “No, seriously, go for it. It’ll be a bestseller.”
A long and hilarious list of what not to do in your writing.
*Or the guy just this morning holding up the line at Starbucks while he explained to the baristas that he is a Writer (emphasis his) and so really pays attention to people and conversations and cultural transitions, and used that as an excuse to inquire into all of their ethnic backgrounds in a really uncomfortable way.
