Writing: February 2019

  1. The Story 2019

    The tenth annual The Story conference was as good as ever, with Alison S. M. Kobayashi and Sara Wajid giving my favourite talks.

  2. ‘Light Years’ by James Salter

    From 1975, I really enjoyed this book.

  3. Jumping off cliffs

    A quote about breaking out of a well-worn rut, by Benny Golson.

  4. At the gym

    Two gym thoughts.

  5. ‘Olive Kitteridge’

    We watched the miniseries. Recommended, but a bit hard going.

  6. The late style or elder game of blogging

    Wondering about the “elder game” and “late style” of blogging, and how weeknotes, as a phase of blogging, might fit in.
