Throughout all the somewhat frantic busyness leading up to Test and the Quartermain interview, etc., I've been making sure I take some time to write each day, just to keep in touch. I've mostly been editing, which means deleting heavily and trashing a good many poems. My manuscript, which was close to twenty pages, is now down to eight (or possibly ten). I like the push-pull of improvisation and discovery and then refocusing. This is definitely a "pull" phase, and it feels good. Anyway, I found myself buying a grey Duo-Tang for the MS, which I suppose means something.
