Reprinted from Sunday’s MacroParentheticals0040:

While I’m very much in the inchoate stages of thought-noodling and can’t share particulars here (because I don’t have any), it’s exceedingly likely that the birthday novella/novelette release discussed in last week’s Informality won’t be a one-off thing, but a yearly one, my birthday present to myself, a way to view each passing year not as one of stagnation and self-loathing (as I did throughout my 30s) but of incremental progress and a modicum of accomplishment. So, while I’m taking the next six months to shock and awe the current (and myself), the writing of the next will start after the release of the first in August and will be scheduled/timeblocked in with other long-form work for the duration of the year.

More when I know it.
