I’m starting a notebook of Prague: impressions and people. It’ll be useful in 4 or 5 years, when I’m ready to write about the city, and the people I’ve met, known briefly, and got to know well.
Of course, I have this blog for starters, but a full rendering of the people is essential: those I’ve worked with, my students, friends, acquaintances, expats, natives, transients, government officials, barmen, bar wenches, etcetera. Their personalities, their opinions, their philosophies, are the building blocks of a Prague novel.
And … there’s always the Little Fox, too.
