Super busy day today. But at last I got 7 hours of sleep, which is going to help me through the day.
- Oxford talk @ Mugar: review notes, check references, re-read Lyon paper (and get it printed out?), draft 3 paragraphs (with the BB ch. in mind), expand bibliographical research,
- paper for Vladimir: re-read previous version, complete references, expand 2 paragraphs, rethink the title
- M/B work on it for 30′
emails Carlaemail Matthew, David Ch., Norman
- check whether dinner with Valeria is confirmed or not in the end and revise plan of the day at noon based on that
Just as an after-thought, I don’t think I’ve ever shared my pinterest board about writing here. Together with a lot of stationery I covet, there are links to lots of useful books there. They are mostly meant for non fiction, but some are useful also for fiction. One I am totally in love with is J. Williams, Style: lessons in clarity and grace.
But another one, which I haven’t yet looked into but seems amazing and might be very useful for fiction writers, is Lisa Cron, Wired for story.
And now, time to really start some serious work. Will try to pace myself, though, I think today will be a pomodoro day!
ETA: The A/C is damn cold in the library. I’ve taken a hood fleece and still have blue fingers. My brain cells are all frozen. Hate hate hate this! Don’t manage to think when I’m too cold, and this feels way too cold to me, especially when I think that outside is such a lovely temperature. Cultural differences, and denial of climate change if you ask me!!! there’s simply no need whatsoever to keep this refrigerating temperatures in the libraries as if we were all mummies to be preserved.
