Partial list of tasks in Progress

Art

1. 09_Study Abstract Expressionism

Steven Naifeeh & Gregory White Smith Jackson Pollock: An American Saga

Encapsulated into 800 Pulitzer Prize winning biography pages, plus 150 note pages, Pollock’s life is one of the most depressing I’ve ever read about, this book was sad, just plain sad, his life a train wreck. Yet, and until the end, he fought back as well as he and the art he created I believe to be some of the best of the 20th Century.

2. 09_Study of Johns & Rauschenberg

Dorothy Kinosinski’s Dialogues: Duchamp Cornell Johns Rauschenberg

A catalogue of a show which dealt with the influence by and overlap of the four artist’s work, an analysis done in a readable and informative way.

Reading

1. Read every book offered up at my book club_(

F. Scott Fitzgerald The Great Gatsby

Not a word out of place, so much story in 175 pages, understandably a classic.

5. Read one additional fic/ non-fic book per month

Harlan Ellison’s Spider Kiss

The only book inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, it was written in the late 1950s as historical fiction and covers the rise and fall of ‘rock legend’.

6. Read poetry

Frank O’Hara Amorous Nightmares of Delay Selected Plays

A great deal of the time, I had little idea what he was talking about, what the plays were about but somehow and especially with O’Hara, that hardly matters. It’s all about the words even if this isn't exactly poetry.

9. Read books about writing or poetry_(8/ 33)

David Madden’s Revising Fiction: A Handbook

Third times a charm, twice before I’d tried to read this. First published in 1988, the book presumes that the first draft is complete and now it’s all about REVISION REVISION REVISION using the 185 techniques detailed. With authors’ quotes about revising and many before and after examples from published works, I’m sure I’ll find this book very useful when I actually have the first draft complete.

I admire how much you've accomplished. I should try to be more focused and organized!

doing this comm. has done it for me, I never was able to get this much done before. And this is only part of it. I feel like I've wasted so much time which I normally did with abandon. It's having everything right there in front of you all the time. I encourage you, I really do.

And thanks for commenting, I appreciate it.
