Notes in February 2020

In reading about writing, I’ve been exploring Dinty W. Moore’s The Story Cure. And examining my list of writing books to reread and read, trying to decide on a focus for this year, to narrow the field of possibilities.

In writing about writing, I am working on a piece about the ways in which coverage of certain themes has changed over the past decade.

In reading about reading, I have been delving into Ig Publishing’s Bookmarked series, having particularly enjoyed Aaron Burch’s chat on Stephen King’s The Body.

And, in writing about reading, I have been rereading The Handmaid’s Tale and comparing the elements which most appealed to me as a younger reader and how that has changed over the course of time. And studying the relationship between it and the follow-up, The Testaments.
