“Evenings: See friends. Read in cafes.” –Henry Miller
Here’s what I’ve been up to this week, besides trying to make a dent in my “unread” bookshelf to make room for Christmas presents.
What I’m Reading
Snow in fiction and poetry over at The Millions.
Walter Mosley’s This Year you Write your Novel.
A friendly reminder from WritingRoutines.com. Required reading if you tell yourself you don’t have the time to write.
What I’m Listening to
Leonard Cohen while I reread The Book of Longing.
What I’m Doing
Working smarter. Writing requires deep work, not long hours.
Working with The Contribune, which was founded by my neighbor from middle school.
Watching Bogart in In a Lonely Place, a classic of film noir and, if you look closely, a big influence on Californication.
