I'm curious about that translating business—and congrats on the publications, too. THE WORD is fantastic. The London reading I heard and I loved it then, too.

Enjoyed reading this. Congrats on the publications and I'm looking forward to hear more about the novel-writing process!

thanks for sharing this, partly because - without the film experiences to compare with - i'm probably at a similar place. i've also had these "i think i found a voice" moments and they're just brilliant. and while i don't abhor research, it happens, when it happens, in a different part of my brain & i'm not sure that part's doing any of the writing. no, i'm sure it is not doing the writing. i should say that i'm also engaged with a historical sujet (see excerpts here)...hampered, too, by a language (and culture) gap (though of a different nature). i don't envy you and yet i do, because you also sit on top of your material—the stones of sansoucci will speak to you. many the oaks along the havel have seen military parades 200 years ago. ... about that momentum: i've found that there's a point of no return & i've reached it but i've sat on my material (researching it very half-heartedly) for over a year until the character wanted to get out. character incarceration is a terrible thing...good luck to you!

the pallas buildings in potsdamer straße, that's a few minutes away from my school...the dishes reveal turkish families live there. i first thought it was wedding until i saw this funny building which is built across the street (there's another one like it, think at kottbusser tor U-bahn station. yeah...tons of futuristic vistas in berlin. great photos.
