Self is going through a stash of papers that she’s been toting around in her suitcase, for the longest time.
Lo and behold, it’s a print-out of her story, “Ice.” The one that Bellingham Review is going to publish.
Self’s writing is very, very spare.
Some have even described it as “simple” though self really takes exception to that word as her process is anything but. It is the most intricate process ever.
She cuts ruthlessly during revision.
What’s left on the page is not simple.
At least, not in self’s humble opinion.
Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
