Hello there
Sorry about the two-week delay.
First I put my foot through the stairs in our house and then I got sick. I tried to battle on, but some things had to go.
The good news is that the experience has got me thinking about what it means to work with a lack of slack. To not build time into your days for stuff happening. I put my thoughts into a blog post, which you can find via the first link below.
Anyway, how are you? Working on something exciting? Found something you think I should share in this newsletter?
Don’t forget, you can always hit reply and say hello. I don’t bite.
Have a good week,
Iain

i'm struck by how many readers get trained to read poetry as a decoding process or a riddle-solving. rather than "just" enjoying language and imagining what's happening on the page. a deer can be a symbol of something "profound." or it can be a deer. the sound "deer."

things I would like to do with my novel today.

1. Bury it and then get drunk and forget where.
2. Invent a virus specifically designed to find and destroy all drafts.
3. Bake it into a pie and then feed it to unsuspecting passerby's who will feel sad all day and not know why
And finally

This poem never fails to destroy me. It’s one of the reasons I started writing poetry, a billion years ago. https://t.co/P4Db9oMEsB
