Earlier today I posted: “And if I’m really lucky, I’ll be able to come back to you later today to tell you that the tweaks are all present and correct and the edit is done: oh blessed words.”
Well, now I can confirm that the tweaks are all present and correct and the edit is done: the “send” button has been pressed. Another frabjous day.
It’s been a very long—and frequently winding!— road but the journey of a thousand miles ends as it began, with one step; or in the case of a writer, one word on the page until we come to the final line:
“…the page on the desk
is blank, the pen
a burden to the hand –
she lifts it
draws in breath
until the final line.”
