Scribbledehobbledehoyden: The Magpie's Eye: Page 23


For the most part, nothing terribly interesting.  Notes for a letter to a friend suggesting I have a signing in his/her hometown.  Maybe yes, I said, when I have a book to promote.  Though I'm sorry to tell you that the South did not [something something].  Marianne's retirement.  And I have no idea what those last two words are.  None whatsoever.

A list of things to do and people to write.

But down there at the bottom:  Puking up culture.  That's evocative.  That's what I do in my worst moments as a writer.  That's what most published writing is.  Not saying something interesting and new.  Just puking up received culture.
