Something I thought about:

  • Approaches to revision — I listened to the VS podcast interview with Carmen Giménez Smith and liked her editorial approach of trying to punch up a writer’s strengths rather than finding ways to refine through cutting/shaping. I like this idea of leaning into what’s working and finding ways to amplify that instead of looking at what’s broken and trying to "fix" it.

Something I did:

  • This week involved a good deal of running around and admin. Too much admin.
  • Wrote a post for Diverse Verse.
  • Worked on some ideas on paper.
  • Baked.

Something I read:

  • Look Both Ways by Jason Reynolds
