Kerouac's Writing Tips

Great list I'd never seen before from Jack Kerouac - Belief and Technique for Modern Prose.

Some of my favorite tips -
  1. Write in recollection and amazement for yourself
  2. Believe in the holy contour of life
  3. No fear or shame in the dignity of yr experience, language & knowledge
  4. Bookmovie is the movie in words,the visual American form
  5. In praise of Character in the Bleak inhuman Loneliness
  6. Accept loss forever
  7. Submissive to everything, open, listening
  8. Try never get drunk outside yr own house
  9. Be in love with yr life
  10. Something that you feel will find its own form
  11. Visionary tics shivering in the chest
