Resolved

In this new year I mean to post here once a week.  To start things off, here’s a characteristically pithy quote from Charles Baxter.  He’s the author of one of my all-time favorite novels, the incandescent “Feast of Love”, as well as the eminently useful and provocative book on writing, “Burning Down the House”.  Baxter is a genius and also, so far as I can tell, a truly humble guy.  Not that I’ve  ever met him, but I imagine him as one of those writers who live in that rare state of grace where the work is all.  This year when I get distracted or sabotaged by all the other stuff, as for sure I will, here’s what I’ll tell myself.  “Art is not a sack race.”
