revision

gosh it’s feeling like the novel is coming together– not something I even wanted to ask it to do before– but it’s having those swells and settlings that are so gratifying in story. as I go through the book this draft to my marked places– marked usually with “fix this” — or “I think this has to do with ______” in some other spot– it’s like I figure out what to do just as I get there– b/c of the thing I worked on right before. what an amazing feeling, like when you stand facing the waves in the ocean and let them lift you as they come. It’s finding its linearity– which I did not assume– is I think what’s happening.
