Donald Miller On Writers

Blue Like Jazz has become a popular book, especially among college-age people. Recently, while reading through it, I asked myself (and others) why it connected so well with college students. Is it the humorous stories? The honest reflections? Is it just an easy read?
I believe there is more, and I’d like to hear your thoughts as well. If you’ve read Blue Like Jazz, think on it and tell me what you think makes it connect with people.

In the meantime, I enjoyed this quote from Don as he talks about the life of a writer:

Writers don’t make any money at all. We make about a dollar. It is terrible. But then again we don’t work either.

We sit around in our underwear until noon then go downstairs and make coffee, fry some eggs, read the paper, read part of a book, smell the book, wonder if perhaps we ourselves should work on our book, smell the book again, throw the book across the room because we are quite jealous that any other person wrote a book, feel terribly guilty about throwing the schmuck’s book across the room because we secretly wonder if God in heaven noticed our evil jealousy, or worse, our laziness. We then lie across the couch facedown and mumble to God to forgive us because we are secretly afraid He is going to dry up all our words because we envied another man’s stupid words.

And for this, as I said before, we are paid a dollar.
We are worth so much more.

    Thanks for the suggestion Kelly. I got on Amazon and checked out a summary of Jesus in the Margins. It sounds really good. I think I might check it out.
    I haven’t written any books (yet), but I am pursuing the passion God has given me to be an author, and hope to publish many one day.

    That reminded me of the email where you prayed to God “Why couldn’t I find a new car?” Then it was “Forgive me, God, for being greedy. Please don’t take my new camera away.”

    You need to get a #1 seller, then the money will roll on in. Or, if it doesn’t, just sit around in your boxers and drink coffee with lots and lots of sugar.
