Chris Rock is Writing a Book

I’m sure a lot of people have heard of Chris Rock before. He’s an American comedian, actor, writer, producer, director and countless other things I am sure, and he got his big break as a cast member on Saturday Night Live in the early 1990s.

Some people like his humour, some don’t. Personally he’s not my type, but he has some good skits that I enjoy. I wouldn’t say he’s a bad comedian at all, just more so that his style and mine don’t overlap much.

Anyways, apparently he is writing another book.

The apparent title is “My First Black Boyfriend,” and is apparently a collection of different essays planned to come out next year and will focus on race and relationships

If you are any sort of well-read person, you’ve definitely heard of Walk Whitman. He was a famous poet, but he also had many other jobs in his career.

I don’t know a whole lot about Whitman. He has always been a sort of “mystical” figure in the world of authors, but I have heard about him.

Philip Eil over at Literary Hub wrote a great piece about Whitman, and how journalism affected him in every step of his career.

I definitely recommend taking a look at the article here.

Do you give writing advice to people?

Do you take writing advice to other?

Has it helped you before? Or does it all get mixed in with the endless information and tips that will “make you a better writer”.

Maybe getting writing advice isn’t the way to go. Maybe you just need to solve the problem for yourself, and figure out what works and what doesn’t work for you.

Either way, you should definitely read this article by Guy Gavriel Kay. He discusses getting writing advice, and how it may not be all it’s worked out to be.
