Taking a five minute break from grading Lit 110 midterms and Iwant to get down some notes on next few Little Lolo Stories. I think and hope I am close to a resolution but my process is so circular–and the chapters feel good as theycome and as I write them so I am not to worried about completion. I’d like get a full document/outline to edit and revise this summer.
Here are some chapters I need to flush out for the Little Lolo Stories:
- ch over Jefe’s bills and worry and little black book of debt, mortgage and bills and obsessing over conscientiousness
- ch over scene in Jorge’s–scene where Jefe defends kids and show he can take them to a restaurant and lighten up–leads to fight scene
- ch or scene over more of a compromise over new baby on the way
- ch on Jefita and her lack of driver’s license and also her feeling of being trapped
- ch onthe house and the feel of the house–more textures of the house
- last or late ch where the crew of boys/Jefe and Jefita visit Mitedio in jail
- early ch between Lolo and Mitedio and advice on being a man
One thought on “Fictive Bearings”
It is those little telling details that reveal so much and get to us about others. The little black book is fascinating and horrible.
