I’ve added another piece of writing to my pages in the sidebar. It’s a sestina called American Spunk Catalog. I started writing it in March this year and finished it today.

The title came to me long ago, back in April 2007. I enjoy this particular combination of words because it primes the imagination. What might an American Spunk Catalog look like? What might be contained in its pages?

In working my way back to writing fiction, I decided to start with a sestina because it’s a highly structured poetic form, so it gives me some parameters to work within. I also appreciate that it’s short compared to a short story or novel, which gives me a chance to feel like I’m making progress in completing a work.
