resolutions & hopes

  • read more books by TWoC
  • write more industriously
  • read more books in translation
  • do more hard factual or formally conservative pieces to repent for all these experiments
  • figure out how writing should change in the age of the anthropocene, the representation of nature and landscape
  • write in a way that more directly addresses failure, like Tristram’s failure to write his life’s story when it takes two years to cover one; what threatens you with silence?
  • read Marx
  • William H. Gass said he used to shotgun two to four books per week when he was your age — get to it, buck-o
  • you like deserts more than forests, plains more than valleys, build this into your narrative aesth
  • eat food

No hopes.
