SPEAKS TO ME






"It's hard, it's a struggle, it's about small breakthroughs and small breakdowns. If it's going really badly and it's like pulling teeth, you're probably on the right track."

                             - Anne Lamott. Writer's Digest May/June 2010 issue.


I'm revising. Still. Some days it's a total drag and other days I get caught up in the excitement of gathering all the threads and creating a really awesome pattern. Other days I'm frustrated by the knots and tangles. Today I'm looking forward to tackling the last 50 pages. My work will not be done, even then, but I'll be that much closer. "Bird by bird," right Anne?

And short stories too - it's great to break from slogging at revisions to write a shorty.

I am laughing my ass off at the moment, because you were maundering about starting the last 50 pages in this post that you wrote 16 days ago. And now you have 5 to go. YOU SO ROCK!

I know - I almost have to eat my words. Which is better than eating my hat. Thanks for helping me rock.
