Today’s Writing

“Sheep is the gentlest things. And they can walk a fence better than any goat.”

“It is much better to write small things than big ones: they are unpretentious and successful.” – Chekhov

Anton tells me to keep it simple. And I feel stupid every time I read his letter to Moscow literary critique Madame M.V. Kiselyov. In it he says he has written a play (Swan Song) in one hour and five minutes – it will take fifteen to twenty minutes to act.

    Weird, as ever, you and your short bits and me, here, writing nothing but paragraphs, ever ever. Long fiction is for she who has something to prove.
