We finally touch on some Murakami weirdness with Confessions of a Shinagawa Monkey from Haruki Murakami’s short story collection, First Person Singular. In this story, we deal with themes of loneliness and unrequited love, all told from the perspective of an unusually intelligent monkey.
We start things off with an interesting conversation about Microsoft Word's new "woke" editing feature. After that, we chat it up with some dialogue talk. Finally, we get to the real topic of the day and devote a good portion of the episode to discussing how to reclaim your creative life. Many of us struggle with creating (in our case, writing) because life seems to always beat us down. It's hard to find your rhythm and get things going the way you want them to. But we might have a solution. One you probably won't like to hear.
