Bookish Gift Idea #6: "Dear Sugar" mugs
Every writer—no, everyone—should know Sugar, The Rumpus’s wise and warm advice columnist. Reading the
“Dear Sugar” column is a reminder of what it means to be part of the human experience. (And seriously—every writer should read this one, at least.)
The Rumpus offers two mugs emblazoned with some of Sugar’s best advice: “
Be brave enough to break your own heart“—from the advice she’d give her 20-year-old self—and the very classic “ Write like a motherfucker” from arguably her most famous column. Try not writing with THAT on your desk.
Both mugs are available in
The Rumpus shop. And check back here every day in December for another bookish gift idea from FWR!
