  I wanted to go over the readings for this class and discuss more on how each of the writer's  drew inspiration from their own lives and from other's.   Amy Poehler’s reading hit me as the most honest and bare piece of work that shows us an  insight into the truth behind ‘writing’. Most of her sentences had me thinking for long. Little  messages like: “This book nearly killed me”, “Jacket keeps the inside warm so that the words  stay permanent”, “romantic idea that writing is some beautiful experience”, “dress for writing”,  “and the most painless easiest way out is death to survive”, “hacking away at a freezer with a  screwdriver”  were very powerful. She puts her entire self to write this preface. Her every  sentence is a display of her personal life and her experience as a writer. I like how she mentions  all her favorite books and says she keeps re­reading them to obtain inspiration I can relate to  this so well. During every English exam I re­read Harry Potter more than the course material  itself. It helps me think broader and it shows me how wild our imaginations could go so as to  create an entire new world. Her poem, which she writes as a thirteen year old is titled ‘Social  Studies’ which is very surprising.  Malcolm’s reading came across as a very powerful one. When I read about his biography I got  more insight into his childhood as an orphan. It is those very students who are put down on their  ambitious career that succeed. He has been called one of the greatest and most influential  African Americans in history. When he was in prison, he met a fellow convict John Bembry, a  self­educated man he would later describe as “the first man I have ever seen command total  respect.. with words”. Under Bembry’s influence, Malcolm developed a voracious appetite for  reading. I was moved by how he taught himself to read and write from a dictionary. It is such a  powerful tool, only if we know how to use it.    Sherman Alexie’s reading was also a very interesting piece given the fact that he taught himself  how to read. It is a very beautiful description that he presents on how he taught himself to read  from comic books. He says he his family lived on a “combination of irregular paychecks, hope,  fear and government surplus food”, which looks like the source of his inspiration to achieve the  impossible. He draws us into the reality. His description of a paragraph as a boundary/fence is  so true and he also relates it to his reservation. He gets so involved in his writing that he also  describes his family as an essay with seven paragraphs.
