Things I’m Writing About, Editing, and Reading This Week
Can you believe it’s June?
Last week I pushed hard to meet a Monday deadline and didn’t post. I did read a few items of note: Dept. of Speculation by Jenny Offill (unique, fractured structure) and this anonymous op-ed about higher education and social justice (as in, is there room for real discourse in an era of hyper-sensitivity?).
Here’s what’s on deck and in progress this week:
Writing about . . . Old houses, insects, and breakups (a return to revising a 30-page short story I let breathe for a month. . . now the post-it notes and hand-scribblings look like the rantings of a mad woman)
Editing. . . Professional statements for a friend who’s in the running for a high-level, high-profile position in a city administration (wish him luck!)
Reading. . . Stranger Things Happen by Kelly Link (link) and this Paris Review interview with Elena Ferrante
And your project. I have room in June for a critique, edit, or short-term writing job. Contact me to check on availability.
Happy writing, editing, and reading to you.
