Something I thought about:
- The difference between writing from research and writing from direct experience — specifically the types of details that are selected and the kinds of characters and complexity that can be developed in each situation.
Something I did:
- Friends from the US were in town! These were our first international visitors since before the pandemic. We spent a couple of days playing tourist together, which was lovely – visiting the Château de Chillon and the Roman ruins at Vidy.
- More genetic criticism in combination with editorial correspondence.
Something I read:
- Started Rhetoric of Empire by David Spurr
