I miss your blog Things I’ve Bought That I Love.
I’m sorry. I’m on Twitter but it’s hard to hawk things in 140 characters. And I’m busy. I’m writing a book now.
How are you enjoying the literary process? Did you find that it was an easy transition from the television and film writing
Yeah, I love it. It is different though. [My book is] short essays and comedy pieces. Some are a page. Some are a couple sentences. Some are two pages. That kind of thing.
What are some of the subjects you discuss?
Well, the titles of each essay are kind of self-explanatory. One of the titles is called “The 20 Things You Need to Do If You’re a Guy.” Another is “These Are the Photos in My Blackberry” and I just show all the photos in my Blackberry with descriptions. One essay is called “B.J. Novak” and it’s just talks about B.J. Novak so it’s just things like that. Actually, my favorite one is called “Don’t Peak in High School.”
So it’s kind of Mindy Kaling’s How-To Guide for Life.
It’s very bossy. It’s basically a book of all of my bossy opinions.
Have I mentioned lately how excited I am for Mindy Kaling’s book?
I adore her.
