This minisode is about taking stock and resisting the urge to turn our own lives into listicles or “best of the decade” featurettes, but instead residing in the messy and complex abundance of it all. You know, just some low-stakes early December thoughts. Also, here are some low-stakes early December links:
- Much of my thinking about abundance, canonicity, publishing, and artificial scarcity comes from Richard Nash’s “What Is the Business of Literature?”
- On the topic of media coverage, best-of lists, and what gets left out (and why!) you should read this excellent twitter thread by the brilliant Jen Sookfong Lee.
- That’s it! Two links! That’s all you get! I’m going to a party now!
