Autobiography, Day 4

I promise not to let the Autobiography project take over the blog. In addition to posting a photo every day, I have every intention of posting at least two full reviews each week. But today was – well, it was wonderful, but it was also a bit taxing. It involved taking my car in for $1,200 worth of repairs and maintenance, navigating the city on Muni, an hour of tutoring in the morning, a bad attack of plantar fasciitis in my right foot, a delightful lunch with four old friends, including Jill, and a fruitful trip to Green Apple Books. Then Jill sat with me in a cafe for almost three hours and helped me plot out the rest of the novel I’m writing – which was honestly the best gift she could have given me right now. I can’t say that we solved every problem that will come up in terms of how the characters’ lives intersect and how the plot lines will resolve, but I came home so focused and feeling newly confident that this project is worth pursuing. So I’m sending out enormous thanks to Jill and posting just an Autobiography photo today. I’ll be back on Sunday with something a little more ambitious.

    “A few weeks ago he had seen a severed hand…and had kicked it into the gutter…?” What have you been reading??

    Also you are very welcome. It was fun and I’m so glad to have been able to help out. 🙂

      It’s 1984, but I haven’t “been reading” it. This project is not about what I am reading right now. It’s about going back over years and years of annotations and finding places where the literature taught me about myself.

      It’s hard being a misunderstood artist.
