Fitting Tiny Pieces Together 

No good solutions come to mind for the writing workflow problems I’ve been trying to think about. So, here’s booklog stuff at Powell’s on Hawthorne:

Hacking Matter: Levitating Chairs, Quantum Mirages, and the Infinite Weirdness of Programmable Atoms (Basic Books, 2003), Wil McCarthy

The Stuff of Life: Profiles of the Molecules that Make Us Tick (Times Books, Henry Holt, 2002), Eric P. Widmaier

These two titles and the length of the books (224 and 135 pages, respectively) jogged the thought that essay-length works concerning specific subjects are fine tools for thought. They prompted me to want to write something in the 10,000-word range concerning atoms, molecules, energy, and so forth; that is, they prompted me to want to write about chemistry, for shame.

We’ll see where that desire takes me, I’m sure.

Writing workflow problems? Say more?
