back to the brain of teaching

First day of classes and back to the brain of teaching. I have carved a tuesday and thursday morning section for myself to write and edit. Thanks to D. Again I started this blog/site to follow my progress and to help to discipline myself away from being just a reader or just a teacher. Don’t get me wrong I love teaching and studying fiction and form and aesthetics. But writers should write. 

With that said, I do want and plan to get back to the Cornbread manuscript and maybe a few of the short stories I’ve neglected. I also have over 30 minutes of old neighborhood footage to get through for some new movies. I’ve also agreed to select and edit some fiction entries for Antique Children’s website. That should help me to think like an editor, teacher and write as a student of literary aesthetic.

  1. I do admire your discipline and ability to do what you want to, as well as need to do. I want to see how you’re going to end the CB m.s., so I’m glad to hear you’re going back to it.
