Saw Eric Samuelen’s “3” with Katy last night. Quite thought-provoking–especially “Community Standard,” which investigates whether or not pornography violates the community’s standards or accurately represents what the community deems acceptable if kept hidden.

This is a cool idea: 26-minute memoir project. And would be something I could do for a writing prompt or perhaps even daily for a while.

Also, this article may help me with my vision, as I’m struggling with the format I want my memoir to take: How to Write a Personal Essay.

I just bought On the Outskirts of Normal, to prepare for my summer workshop with Debra Monroe. I have lots of reading–not to mention writing–to do before mid-July. I need to read Phillip Lopate’s book To Show and To Tell: The Craft of Literary Nonfiction and am hoping to submit something to Creative Nonfiction’s Memoir Issue by the end of May.
