As the summer semester ends and the fall semester approaches, I have SO FREAKIN MUCH TO DO, and yet–I feel called, today, to think about the Encyclopedia article I’ve been commissioned to write on Gloria Anzald̀úa. So, I’m reading some sample entries and will begin working on the outline.

Yes. Outlines: this is the other switch in my thinking, most recently. Inspired by Graham Harman’s amazing productivity and his insistence that a detailed outline helps him to be so productive, I’m giving the detailed outline a try. Let’s see how it goes. Since I have strong faith in an epistemology of writing, where I learn what I think (and create new thoughts) as I write, it will be interesting to see how this outline process affects my thinking and insights.
