memoir

Just unexpectedly finished a draft of a memoir. Not something I ever thought I would write, but somehow I churned out 65000 or so words in a few weeks, making it the fastest thing I’ve written.

I didn’t write it as an outward facing document – I don’t expect to show it to anyone, or think that I am particularly interesting or have lived a particularly interesting life – approaching it more as an exercise in self-reflection at what is perhaps the half-way mark of a life, and turning an unsentimental gaze across time, identity, and change. As such I have found it a rewarding process, and will be curious to read it over sometime.

Mostly just logging it as it marks the first time I have written two drafts of new books in one year.
