day 44

i'm still only on page 4 with my fourth revision, so i retreated to tricking myself into finishing the story off: i bought myself a book i mustn't read until i've completed my work. if the book interests me enough, this usually works. this time it's a suhrkamp insel edition that compiles personal statements of various german authors regarding their first novels. how much time it took for them to write it, their working procedures, how they feel about it today and so forth.

another interesting read i found in my mailbox today is Destination King's, the welcome guide for international students at king's college. suppose i'll better get revising.
