Excited to Write

Enthusiasm and inspiration aren’t necessary for writing (maybe motivation is), but I am excited to write today.

Can’t hurt.

Rose early. Short walk. Then read Borges’ Borges on Writing”, which analyzes a short story, poetry, and translation, all from Borges’ and his translator/collaborator Di Giovanni’s points of view.

Useful to hear Borges speak about his own work (as this was a live seminar recorded), and to consider poetry and prose in parallel.

The morning was quiet, but mild. A warm November day in Minnesota.

Present day, present time.

And the time is for writing.

Fiction day. My favorite.

(Yesterday I wrote an article about charisma and the election for, ended the day with work on the opening chapters of Sound of Stone.)
