I had this dream the other night I was walking in a Delta forest. The sun was shining golden green. The birds were singing. All around me frogs croaked.
I walked down to the brake. Trash was floating up against the knees of the cypress. I looked down at my feet. An iPad was lying facedown next to a clump of pussywillows. All of which goes to confirm this ongoing need I have to withdraw from the digital world.
However, I have been revising Unreformed. I signed with an amazing agent in December. She’s guiding me through another round of edits, which could be daunting. However Fiction School had a great episode on revising a book-length project. My favorite trick: opening a new document and retyping the draft. There’s no way I’m wasting time typing one unnecessary scene or word.
Also, Dinty Moore’s The Story Cure was recently published by Penguin. I cannot recommend this book enough.
