Back in MFA school, one of my classmates who I could name drop and insert an Amazon affiliate link for went from loving my ending to a story to thinking it was bullshit because it was—very intentionally—bullshit. It was a short piece and I was working on the novel by that time and I rushed the finish because the story didn’t work out.
I’m thinking I have an idea for a project going forward.
I’m not sure how well it’s going to work out. And I’m not seriously committing to it (or not) until my birthday, so two months and a few days. But it’s not a terrible idea. Or it is a terrible idea. But it might be a worthwhile idea.
Summer as chill prep. Is it also chill without prep?
