A byte of midweek reading…

Advertisements Or, flash nonfiction Last week I published a short creative nonfiction piece in the Women* Writing Berlin Lab Magazine, something I’d been working on for a while that dealt with something from an even longer while ago. A lot of my recent work has confronted, examined, and/or come to terms with memory, of whichContinue reading “A byte of midweek reading…”

“Hello, it’s the past”

Advertisements In a good way! Well, I don’t know about anybody else, but I can safely say this is the best year-beginning I’ve had in a while. I spent New Year’s Eve and much of New Year’s Day with a dear friend, walking around her neighborhood, meeting other friends of hers, counting lessons from theContinue reading ““Hello, it’s the past””

NaNoWriMo???

Advertisements In which I take a month’s inventory November is National Novel Writing Month, as the US-based organization attempting to bully us into drafting 50,000 words would have us believe. I’ll mention it in passing to non-Americans who look at me as if I’ve just thrown in a dialect word, and, in a way, IContinue reading “NaNoWriMo???”

On Writing (About Other People)

Advertisements In which there will be hot takes Hi all. This week I wanted to do another post about the act of writing, since I haven’t done one in a while, and since I’ve written much nonfiction in the past couple years even beyond what I do here.

Lit Review: POP SONG

Advertisements In which I jump on a brand-new book! “No one could have predicted Gigliotti would be drawn to a title like this,” alien scholars at the inter-terrestrial conference will quip years later, eliciting a chuckle from the panel crowd, after humanity is gone and the only remains of literature are this blog and aContinue reading “Lit Review: POP SONG”

5 Times I Related Way Too Hard to Elton John’s ME

Advertisements In which I say “oh God same” *CW: addiction* Last weekend I listened to Elton John’s recent autobiography on Audible, read in alternating chapters by the man himself and Taron Egerton, who played him in Rocketman. And let me tell you: you do not need to have had a sixteen-year cocaine habit to findContinue reading “5 Times I Related Way Too Hard to Elton John’s ME”

Lit Review: REMAIN IN LOVE

Advertisements In which I do just that *CW: addiction* This is a story of the tightest rhythm section ever. And possibly the most successful married pop act ever. One of them is French Catholic, which I get; the other is from Kentucky and spent his youth in the KY/OH/western-PA area, which I get. Their jointContinue reading “Lit Review: REMAIN IN LOVE”
