A writing consultant just mentioned journaling. I admit that I have a terrible memory. I should journal, just like I should keep a dream diary and a biorhythmic chart. I know he’s right. I would journal on the computer since I am on the internet all day long, but I always want to talk about people that I know. Sometimes the commentary is innocuous, other times people trigger responses that should remain private. Another excuse to compulsively collect notebooks.
Month: October 2013
Been consumed by my personal statement. Decided, almost whimsily, to apply to a graduate English program in Seattle. Thinking a lot about what I can and cannot plan for when we travel so far west. Saving money. Wondering where it will come from next.
Trying to refresh my memory of the course I taught as an undergraduate. Creative storytelling, disruption of genre, challenging the narrow confines that we try to shape words with. Why I like graphic novels, zines, democratization of publishing & literature. Too bad quality is sacrificed in this world.
Thoughts on Indigenous Peoples Day
If any of y’all Americans are still celebrating Columbus Day, you need to get a grip and go read a book. Howard Zinn, “Lies My Teacher Told Me,” the internet.
Here’s a good start: Christopher Columbus was awful (but this other guy was not) – The Oatmeal.
Helping a friend sell candles downtown. The gentleman at the booth next to me sounds 100% like an android. Also, tourists don’t know how to read parking meters!
Good thing I brought my research bag: almonds, mate, legal pads, and 200 pages of postcolonial goodies.
