This winter will be spent revising my novel. After working on it for three winters, I finished the first draft this past spring. I’m so excited about being able to dig my fingers back into it soon.
Meanwhile, my mind often wanders forward into my next novel. It is about Odysseus and a relationship he has during his voyage which has never been explored in literature. I’m so excited about being able to dig my fingers into that story.
When articles like this one come into my peripheral vision, I immediately focus on them. This is such an astute piece about the power of art, and how art has always been a subversive act going back through all of time.
I invite you who weave tales to read this brilliant piece.
Here’s the line that will remain with me: “Artist, object, and interpreter join together in an unruly alliance of which we can still be a part.”
