hello, again

Hello friends—

I’m starting this weekly newsletter because I notice that I complain less when I think more, and when I talk to friends, I feel better. I would like us all to feel a little better and think a little more.

The free posts will be small, personal essays about whatever’s on my mind. There will be paid posts more akin to criticism—books, essays, movies, shows, etc. I also plan to migrate many of my spicy takes to this letter’s paid posts. I’ll try to dig down into why it is that I’m suspicious of first-person fiction, flashbacks, asterisks, and more! Kind of like mini craft essays, but chaotic.

I think of this letter as a space to think and laugh and learn. I’m hoping you’ll join me. And maybe we’ll find a quiet place to talk in all the noise out there.

The first posts go out next week. Look for it.

Hope to see you soon,

b

In the mean time, tell your friends!
