Notes in March 2019

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.
