I’VE BEEN READING “A CONFEDERACY OF DUNCES.” It’s really funny. I’d never heard of it before, you know? Before it was usually just Russian writers that I was reading: Leo Tolstoy and Fyodor Dostoyevsky and that stuff.
This year I feel like I’ve been learning, but I haven’t been doing much. I haven’t been really working on my own writing much. It’s just been what I’ve been handing in to class — academic stuff. But next year I want to work more on my own writing, maybe submitting it somewhere or starting something. Maybe my own literary magazine. Start distributing my own ’zine. That’ll be my motivation — start a project.
