In Drafts on December 19, 2013 at 6:30 am

No two pregnancies alike, they say. No two writing experiences either. The current draft: hardest writing yet. A lot will get culled out that must first get written down.

voilà, the long and short of it.

In dreamland, local people I like were aghast after reading something I’d just put down in draft form. So unlike the person they thought of as me, they said (in much more critical terms; dreamland doesn’t do polite, except as a joke). The dreamer took it all in with disappointment, of course, but also with something akin to a gallic shrug. C’est la vie et c’est comme ça.

You can’t revise it if you don’t write it first.
