Lin-Manuel Miranda, the creator of the Broadway hit “Hamilton,” will release a book of his beloved Twitter pep talks this fall.
Random House will publish “Gmorning, Gnight!: Little Pep Talks for Me & You” on Oct. 23, the press said in a news release. The book will be illustrated by Jonny Sun, an artist and humorist whose debut book “Everyone’s a Aliebn When Ur a Aliebn Too” was released last year.
Miranda’s Twitter affirmations, usually starting with the greetings “Gmorning” or “Gnight,” have long been a favorite of his fans.
Gmorning!— Lin-Manuel Miranda (@Lin_Manuel) June 11, 2018
You're gonna make mistakes.
You're gonna fail.
You're gonna get back up.
You're gonna break hearts.
You're gonna change minds.
You're gonna make noise.
You're gonna make music.
You're gonna be late, let's GO
Gmorning!— Lin-Manuel Miranda (@Lin_Manuel) May 30, 2018
Before you let the world in, make a little space for yourself.
Cup of coffee, tidy the counter, morning quiet.
Savor the best part of that dream you had for one more second.
Woo! Okay. Have at it, world!
Gnight from the older version of you— Lin-Manuel Miranda (@Lin_Manuel) July 12, 2018
Who remembers the very moment you are in right now
And is grinning from ear to ear, because
you have no idea about
the wonders ahead
Gnight!— Lin-Manuel Miranda (@Lin_Manuel) May 15, 2018
Across centuries and continents,
all of history conspired to bring you to where you are.
And THIS day in your life was JUST the beginning of a longer story,
the first pen stroke of something new.
Tomorrow, the second.
“He wrote these original sayings, aphorisms, and poetry for himself as much as for others,” Random House said in the news release. “But as Miranda’s audience grew, these messages took on a life on their own.”
The publisher provided an excerpt from the book’s introduction,written in verse:
I wanted to wish you good morning.
I wanted to wish you good night.
I started to write these on Twitter,
A way of just being polite.
I’m really quite hooked on the Twitter,
They should take my phone out and lock it.
The biggest distraction for someone like me?
An audience up in my pocket.
Miranda and Sun shared the news of the book’s upcoming release on — of course — Twitter:
Random House said that part of the proceeds from the book will be donated to charities “that serve children and families through education, legal and human services, literacy, arts, and cultural initiatives.”
