The first day of Meg Tuite's class ("Plundering Hybrids: Variety in Verbiage That Shakes Sentence Foundation, Cuts Through the Narrative Shortcut to Nowhere!") and my mind is blown. Reading Garielle Lutz for the first time, who's very influenced by Gordon Lish's sentence poetics (I remember how completely jazzed Steve was when he took a class from Lish years ago). Can I manage the level of analysis within the sentence that he does? Instead of finding out, I took a grand detour inspired by a line in one of Meg's prompts ("Let each sentence ride its own bus"). But it was fun. Looking forward to tomorrow.
And I managed to finish a draft for Catapult with exactly 200 more words (the limit they suggested). Still not sure about one addition, but I'll have something to send to them by their Monday deadline.
