Friday Links

Ciao, amici! Let’s link it up.

Writing Links

James Patterson is the world’s highest-paid author, taking in $82 million last year. The average author makes only about $14 million per year so Mr. Patterson is doing very well for himself.

A Pixar artist writes an open letter to artists everywhere. “The important thing is to slog diligently through the quagmire of discouragement and despair.” Sure, you’ve seen this “never surrender” advice before, but have you seen it decorated with a sketch of the kid from Up?

Read four letters by four famous authors: Jack Kerouac, Kurt Vonnegut, J.R.R. Tolkien, and John Keats. Vonnegut writes about his P.O.W. experience, Tolkien shows love to a fan. All four taken from Letters of Note.

They’re coming out with a documentary about Ken Kesey, author of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. Or rather, a documentary about a certain road trip in particular. I’ve never even read the book, but for some reason this movie intrigues me. Maybe I’m just a sucker for stories with LSD as a plot element?

What’s this, you ask? Oh, nothing special. Just a woman PLAYING FLIGHT OF THE BUMBLEBEE ON AN ACCORDION.

You’re welcome.

Hope your weekend is trippy and your drugs are legal. Failing that, if you start a counterculture revolution, make it a good one. See you on Monday!
