Blake Butler does not like novels that are named after U.S. states

I've been working on either prose poetry or micro fiction or both lately. I've posted two of them. I've been writing one or two of those things a day. I like doing them. It's tough. I don't think I'm very good at it. I think it will get better over time. It's a challenge to use so few words to tell a story, to come up with a good idea for a complete story. It feels like I'm burning through many great ideas. Ideas that I could otherwise get a lot of words out of rather than a few.

I am doing this while I wait to here back from my mentor regarding my novella. He is MIA. I can't really start working on it again until I receive his email. Maybe he has already sent it and I never received it. A couple of people have told me that they've sent me an email recently and I have not received these emails. This sort of thing usually happens while I am waiting for an email from my mentor. I guess I will wait until next week before I try contacting him again.

I think I'll name all my blog posts after people who read my blog for a while. I will go down the list. It will make them feel special and appreciated.



i think its pretty true

why do you have to wait for your mentor?
