final shapshots from revisionland

An Eventide Edition of what very well may be the final* Snapshots from Revisionland**. Shiny new fountain pen that my in-laws brought me this weekend. It is my very first new-new fountain pen! All my other ones are vintage. Left over papadum from dinner: Hair dye, because my roots were looking confused again: And champagne, […]

re-visioning

This post is going to be about revising. It will not be anywhere near as good as this post about revising, but I figured I’d give it a whirl anyway. I’ve gotten fairly familiar with how this process works for me, and as you all know by now, ’tis the summer of revision around here. […]
