after making that last post, i’m pretty sure my rss feed for google reader (and possibly other feed readers) didn’t show this massive post i did a couple of weeks ago.  if you didn’t see it (believe me, you would have noticed), you can read it here.

    It did not show. I had to LOOK for it. Don’t let that happen again.

    I have comments to make on it, but they are festering in my mind. I will try to articulate them tomorrow.

    Liked, definitely. That kind of ecstatic sentence appreciation is one of my very favorite things. Whenever I’m reading some giant book like Tree of Smoke I get a weird sentence anxiety about how any person could decide that these are the 30000 (or whatever) sentences that they’re going to put in a book with this word choice and in this order. I have no idea how I’ve rationalized* that I should try writing flash fiction considering sentence anxiety with that should probably be ten fold.

    The longest fiction thing I’ve ever written is also the only thing I have in print, some 2000 words about fetishizing kitchen appliances which I guess is what happens when you read too much Cheever. There’s probably one decent sentence in the whole thing.

    *uh, laziness.
