The good news is that I think I have found a writing project I want to pursue. While I did a chunk of the research in my past life as a doctoral graduate student, there is still a great deal of reading and thinking to be done before I begin to write. Which brings us to the bad news.
I’m going to back off from blogging for awhile. I’ll post from time to time – maybe once a week – so do check in here. But, I am like tofu: my writing takes on the flavor of what I am reading. So, I need to stop reading blogs for the most part and concentrate on books. I’ll be back, but if you don’t see me around your blogs, you know where I’ll be: neck high in Gertrude Stein.
Yes, really. I’m dumping you for Gertrude Stein. Only, don’t think of it as dumping. Think of it as “being on a break.” Really, I’m just cheating on you with Gertrude Stein.
I’m excited about this. Lately, my writing has been about as dried and shriveled as my grandmother’s breasts. Often, when I finish a long project, I flounder and wonder if I’ll ever find something else I want to write about. I have come to realize that the subjects always present themselves.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, there is an egotistical lesbian expat genius awaiting my attention. I just hope Alice Toklas doesn’t get too jealous.
