Inspiring TV Show: Insecure
Issa Rae is a comedic force to be reckoned with, but where she really shines (and inspires) is in her ability to understand the human condition and translate that into writing. She embraces and highlights personal flaws in a way many writers avoid, or simply can’t do. Her writing is from the heart, which makes even the most minor characters in Insecure full fledged and relatable.
Relaxing TV Show: Bob’s Burgers
There’s no level of stress in the world that can’t be absolved by a nice Indica and a Bob’s Burgers marathon. Or even just one Bob’s Burgers episode. It’s the perfect combination of “no brain power needed” and genuine laughs. Any episode where Bob gets too passionate about anything is a home run for me.
Motivational Novel: Diary by Chuck Palahniuk
Diary is one of only two books I’ve ever reread. The absurdity and world building keeps it a constant source of inspiration as I try to creatively push myself to think outside the norms of storytelling. It’s not often regarded as one of Chuck Palahniuk’s best works, but something about seeing him outside his comfort zone makes me want to take a step outside of mine.
