In the meantime, though, here is a short round-up on some reading I did during retreat week and prepared back then.
- I totally missed the teen girl killer thing that's been going on in YA.
- The Conversation We Never Have It's about privilege. And, yes, it makes writing much easier. There are many people who are only able to live some kind of writing life at all because of it.
- History and STEM I'm guessing that in many scientific fields you build on research that was done before yours. Thus, yes, history is probably important to scientific and technological fields.
