In writing about writing, I am making notes about my experience juggling the voices of seven characters, as I sink into the final stages of revising a book-length manuscript.
In reading, I have just finished Dawn Dumont’s Glass Beads, a collection of stories I am reading to review for an online literary magazine. I’m especially intrigued by the way that she incorporates elements of novel writing so that this collection feels more tightly linked than many linked collections.
And, in writing, 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.
