Until I feel horribly guilty. It's when I remind myself that I have the power to revise or delete. And give myself the freedom to write something, ANYTHING that's not even good. That's when I can start to fill the white space.
Sometimes those original passages are very notes-y, but after reading and re-reading, I can flesh out the initial thoughts. Then those thoughts become scenes. And those scenes become pages.(less)

The Non-Love Ending

Great reading by Tom Perrotta at Skylight Books in LA. Can’t wait to read Mrs. Fletcher which was supposed to be called The MILF so...double interested. Because anything MILF-curious is encouraging.

Rodham by Curtis Sittenfeld
"It's "summer" and it's 2020 and it's a pandemic, so nothing feels quite right. Aren't we all looking for an alternate reality right now?

Clear rating
At 700 pages, Antkind is 300 pages too long. And the story often hangs by a thread.

A little frustrating that Gaitskill doesn’t seem to truly tackle the pathology of Quin, a Me Too perpetrator (and one of the two main characters). Interesting exploration nonetheless. I guess the reader can do his/her own condemning. Or not.
