This may surprise you a little bit, what with all the YouTube research I've done of late and the downloading of Glen Campbell songs, but it is true. I have done fat revisions of poems that were in a sorry state. I have written drafts of things that were the mere whiff of the possibility of the idea of the concept of poems. I have made executive decisions about stuff that no longer appears to need to be in the manuscript. And now, I have
- 2 drafts to write of rather whiffy items
- 3 mash-ups of two or more poems that really should be a single poem
- 1 fat revision of a sorry-state poem
- 2 poems to decide whether they really need to be in the manuscript.
This is doable by May 1. Eminently. After that, I will smoke fat cigars and burn money and download some more stuff, because I will have arrived . . . at the point where I can do more fine-tuned revision. Whoopee!
