This isn't an in depth analysis. I've had migraines this week on account of little blue lights. The easiest news I have worth sharing is that I'm nearly done annotating Dostoevsky's The Idiot in search of metafictive devices, obscure and otherwise.
Some are obvious, like when the narrator makes comments about the story and the nature of stories. Others are more subtle: some characters try to instigate their own denouements and drama, or have long, ironic conversations about the nature of novels. It's adorable. Dostoevsky's writing is rife with spirit, like those TY beanies with the enormous eyes.
In the coming weeks I'll be on a project sabbatical, focusing entirely on submissions of original work, and the search for a stable day job. That said, I have client work booked in July and I'm grateful to have had my education (and the SeanWes community) behind me to help me stabilize that aspect of my career.
