In reading about writing, I’m dabbling in Benjamin Dreyer’s Dreyer’s English. For grammar-related stuff. When i’m feeling more crafty, I’m reading Carl H. Klaus’ book about creating a persona for non-fiction writers.
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 been dipping into Bruce Handy’s Wild Things: The Joy of Reading Children’s Literature as an Adult (2017).
And, in writing about reading, I am working on a review of Nilofar Shidmehr’s Divided Loyalties. Revisiting Marjane Satrapi and Azar Nafisi, along with some other Iranian short stories.
