On the outside this book is about strange-ordinary people and the junk they fill their lives with. Once I started reading it I realized it was a book about the creative process, mostly. Then I realized it was both. I can see how some people might be put off by the fact that this book seems to be half about Miranda's creative struggles while making her movie and half about the oddball characters she met on this totally Julyesque creative whim, but to me it worked well. Admittedly this is because Miranda July is my idol. I found this book to be completely inspiring--because of course you should fight writer's block and the urge to procrastinate and creative anxiety with more creativity. Of course, there is opportunity everywhere to connect and create. And those are the two biggest things I take away from this book. Life is about connection and creation. Life is FOR these things, and the opportunities are everywhere if you are willing to look.
