I've not been moved lately. Tonight, I was.
I saw Paul Lisicky and Mark Doty at The University of Akron. They gave a craft talk.
It was just what I needed. I will spread some of the brilliant things they said throughout my next few posts.
I need to go to bed soon. Tomorrow I am running a 4 mile race. This will be the longest race I've done. When I come home from the race, I am going to write, for the first time in quite a while.
Paul Lisicky said that when he doesn't write, he's sick. Me, too. Post-MFA has been a constant case of the writing blues sniffles. Paul also said that he allows himself to sit down and attempt to make something rather than actually make something. I like that.
Tomorrow I am going to ATTEMPT to run 4 miles. Tomorrow I am going to ATTEMPT to make something with words.
