fortunately, private contractors don't have to sign their rights away so the pedagogy website for instance will still be mine to pimp out as a system for other people who might could use something like it.
but so I brought with me The Making of Americans, all 1000 pages of it. I'm not sure what it was I thought I would do with it (finish it? I'm on page 678 or something like that and have been for four years) but I suppose I should read over the Stein fragment I've got--it's mostly about How to Write--and then look at all the little spots I've bookmarked in this volume to see what comes to mind. I mean there are all sorts of things you can say about the book as a colossal failure, without referring to any particular portion of it, but a close reading of a symptomatic passage can help an argument along at any time. what usually happens in these instances is that, unless I have a passage in mind, I just open one of my bookmarks and see what is going on and what sorts of things I scribbled in the margins, and if there is any way to make it fit into what I'm trying to say, well there's my close reading.
I think I'm scared to death of finishing but I'm going to take a klonopin and open the file. always the hardest thing to do. open the file.
