What have you been doing? Tell me.
I have been trying to write prose, reading Edmund Burke's Reflections on the French Revolution, reading Kafka's "In the Penal Colony," reading Wordsworth's "The Preludes," and also reading Kathy Acker's piece in Biting the Error (Coffee House, 2004).
Also, I have been teaching intro to creative writing. I'm going to ban the words heart and soul. And maybe the verb "to shatter."
Also, I have been watching a lot of Law & Order (season 4).
