The writerly snail
July 30, 2017
This dishevelled little owl is feeling upside-downside because her manuscript has reached the two hundred page mark. (A Miracle.) And much of it is EDITED! (Another Miracle.) And although she writes like a snail (she really does) and although Other People might have achieved SEVEN books (they really do) in the time she's been writing, writing, writing, she'll keep writing and editing until it's done. (Celebration.) And so, to all the little owls who have encouraged her, and asked about her writing, and listened to her talk about writing, and sat goggle-eyed and glazed while she answered and then went on (and on) (and on), she just wanted to say: thank you.
