May Day morning on Dartmoor

Myth & Moor update


Dear readers, my apologies. I've been putting Part 2 of the "Books on Books" posts together, and it's taking longer than expected -- largely because my attention has been diverted by Other Necessary Tasks. So I'm afraid the post (focused on Bookworm: A Memoir of Childhood Reading by Lucy Mangan) will have to be delayed until tomorrow (health issues permitting). In the meantime, I'd like to pass on a fabulous piece about writing that I came across recently, which made me laugh...and wince with painful recognition...and cheer because it's so damn true:

"How Do We Write Now?" by Patricia Lockwood.

I couldn't agree with Lockwood more. (Except for the penis thing.)

See you all tomorrow...I hope.
