I have to say, though, that trying to carve out a third of the novel and re-knit the remaining shreds is kicking my ass from here to eternity. This is fucking hard. I have no doubt to its necessity, but I frequently despair about my ability to do it. Enough so that up until the Write-a-Thon I kept stalling out. Hence the importance of the write-a-thon this year to keep me going--since it started, I've been way more productive. If you can call cutting productive.
See my write-a-thon page here, and the list of officially participating writers (there are quite a few unofficial participants as well) here.
Again, I welcome any sponsors. $6 will get you a copy of my CD of me reading a selection of my poems.
In other news, Lady Churchill's Rosebud Wristlet took a poem. I am chuffed.
