Confessions of a Man with a Head Cold
* I drink
* I like to moan about shit
* I shave about once every two weeks, when the curl of the beard starts itching. I trimmed it once, to avoid shaving, but felt unmasculine doing that
* I hate not going to AWP, but I'd be uptight if I went this year. I'd have to meet all these people that I feel like I already know -- through their work, though e-life in general. It'd be like a meeting of skins. Would it not be strange?
* I've been thinking about rewriting a story that I'm perfectly happy w/. I like it, you don't. So I'm thinking of re-doing it. The basic problem, as I imagine it: nobody gets to the end. They're put off by the particular first-person approach, which is very much out of style. It's the American naif thing, a la Lardner, Anderson and Faulkner in the early part of the last century. So I'm considering rewriting it. 3rd person, maybe.....
