The Prompter Room

For Tuesday, October 4, 2016:


Some recent advice from Anne Lamott, on her way to give a lecture …

The lecture is ‘on everything I know about everything, which takes about 40 minutes but mostly centers on how I am doing at any given moment.  Main points: Thank God that He or She has such low standards.  Take it bird by bird.  Butt in chair.  Shitty first drafts.  Try and remember to breathe every so often.  Take care of the poor.  Practice radical self-care.  And, as Auden says, trust in God, read the New Yorker, and take short views.’
