Breakfast of Champions
I started reading Breakfast of Champions by Kurt Vonnegut today and it inspired me to start writing again. Although his writing isn't full stream-of-conscious, I really enjoy how honest it is. How it gives a glimpse into the mind of the writer and leaves a piece of him behind, in words that transcend time and space.
I never really appreciated the value of a good book until after high school. And I'm still developing my taste for fiction. I read tons of articles online, but they don't (can't) tie together dozens of ideas and touch each reader in a different way.
