BJ Novak makes me want to be a better writer. He makes me want to care less and write more. One More Thing… is a selection of short stories ranging from single paragraphs about missed connections on the train, to epics about cereal box prize winners, with the rematch between the tortoise and the hare in between. I remember seeing a short while ago that he still writes down pitches he has for episodes of The Office. He writes, and it’s good. He allows the ideas just to be, even if they aren’t going to be very long.
I should do that more.
