Notes in July 2018

This month, in reading about writing, I’m enjoying some Paris Review interviews. Earlier in July, I posted my thoughts about an Ursula K. Le Guin essay.

In writing about writing, I continue making notes about my experience juggling the voices of seven characters, as I sink into approach the final stages of revising a book-length manuscript. Which aren’t so final, as I am still discovering layers of characterization to solidify those voices.

In reading about reading, I have just picked up a copy of Jorge Carrión’s Against Amazon: Seven Arguments, One Manifesto (translated by Peter Bush).

And, in writing about reading, I am working on a piece about how reading habits we establish when we’re young can burrow in and inform our reading habits as adults. One day, E.L. Konigsburg – the next, Ruth Rendell.
