I am looking for inspiration for my L.A. music story (as if 50 journals and enough excitement on my part to set off a fireworks display isn’t enough).
So I asked one of my Seattle music critic friends for rock & roll memoir recommendations and he suggested Motley Crue: The Dirt-Confessions of the World’s Most Notorious Rock Band. It’s written by the whole band and just the first paragraph made me laugh out loud. I cannot wait to delve into this book, especially since the Sunset Strip locale and time period overlaps with my own memoir.
Unfortunately I’m supposed to be writing instead of reading right now. I’ve committed to NaNoWriMo–National Novel Writing Month–during which mostly yet-to-be-published writers bang out 50,000 words during the month of November.
My plan is to write during the day and then take this book (and a groupie?) to bed at night with a bottle of Jack Daniel’s, which is the serving suggestion depicted on the cover.
