The Crossroads of ‘Well, duh!’ and ‘No fucking shit?’ [Medium]

I read ‘The Crossroads of Should and Must’ and it made me roll my eyes so hard that they fell out of my head so now I’m sat here writing without eyes or blind drunk drinking whisky in my underwear and questioning my life choices; it’s hard to say really.

I was excited to read this book. It started life as a piece on Medium which went viral and was eventually expanded. Elle Luna is a designer-cum-artist who has inspired millions with the story of her path to success, choosing the ‘must’ of her art over the ‘should’ of her career, and how she pursued life as an artist. But the more I read the more I felt like I was missing something because it just seemed to state the bleeding obvious ad nauseam.

I keep thinking I should write snotty and sarcastic self-help books for people as bored, angry, cynical and jaded as I am but I’m afraid that only I would buy them. How about The Crossroads of ‘Well, duh!’ and ‘No Fucking Shit?’
