Plan: All the latest Twitter hullabaloo has me feeling nostalgic for shared unix systems. Shouldn't we just be micro-blogging and blogging with a more punk aesthetic? & can read my plan from my raspberry pi & (if you are reading this) update from the terminal too. Week 44 of 2022. (Sun 6th Nov...) Reading: # Negentropy https://phys.org/news/2021-03-concept-physics-negentropy-life-smoother.html but is this not just 'make things better organised' by another name? # Le Guin's "The Fisherwoman's Daughter" What a funny, reflectively and insightful essay, on balancing parenting and writing. [ Hat Tip Lucy Whalley: more discussion & other books: https://mobile.twitter.com/lucydotwhalley/status/1588513869764653056 ] - "Babies eat manuscripts. They really do." - "That's just the flip side of the theory that books come from the scrotum." - "I work the way a cow grazes." - "The one thing a writer has to have is not balls. Nor is it a child-free space. ... The one thing a writer needs to have is a pen and some paper." - "but no artist can work well against daily, personal, vengeful resistance. And that's what many women artists get from the people they love and live with."
