On My Road


I find that sometimes you have to look in different places for inspiration and answers for your writing. I decided to read a Kerouac because there is something about his writing that just speaks to me, I know I am not the only one. His use of first person narration is masterful and while I don’t want to emulate it in my current novel I want to take away some of his tricks. Besides, while reading this I feel like I am on an adventure and nothing gets the creative juices flowing like an adventure. 

What are some novels you all read to go on an adventure?

  1. Love this book. I completely changed the write and the way I view it. I’m currently reading his other book ‘lonesome traveler’ and am loving it as I’m in Paris myself right now and just finished reading his bit about the city. Also his the other beat of this generation Allen Ginsberg is great. His Howl is one of my favorite pieces of poetry.

  2. I like to travel the roads less taken. Any time I can travel to India or Tibet I am happy! Right now I am in Africa on the hunt for signs of the fabled “Gorilla” with Monte Reel. “Between Man & Beast” is a great adventure tale.

  3. Dharma Bums is my favorite, but On The Road is a complete masterpiece. Thanks for sharing! If you’re ever interested in some awesome book reviews and musings, be sure to follow! Thanks!
