Pink Cake is a commonplace book.
“A ‘commonplace book,’ I was introduced to the idea in college, and it was supposed to be a place, like, a notebook, where artists and authors collected the scraps and tidbits of inspiration. Quotes, short passages, notes to one’s self.
“I’ve collected a database of useful information and here it is, a selection of quotes and other inspirational material. Perhaps more telling and more fun, for copyright and other legal considerations, check out the pdf file of quotes that didn’t make it into the collection.”
