What Work Is, Part 10

Now that we are back from Iowa, I have to get back to writing. As I get older, I find that I am less easily distacted while working, but have less ability to get back to work if I spend time outside of my routine. A trip half-way across the country will throw me off for a week.

What brings me back to work are books, new journals, resolutions, lists. Sitting in a familiar place day after day.

I just finished reading Halflife, the debut collection by Meghan O'Rourke (W.W. Norton, 2007). I am not sure what to say about the book. I wonder what my reaction would be if I were paid to write a review?

More objective, I think.
