soul guide   hand taken

serene work    on graceful curves

symbol stories writ

I haven’t yet settled down to attempt an edit on my first short story of a couple of days ago. It seems to me that to edit is much more difficult than to write first time. Is that generally so?

The idea comes, it pours out onto the keyboard. And there it is.

I tinker with the words. The idea secretes itself among the mocking letters. I turn them over but the idea stubbornly plays hide and seek.

But which idea? There were many (and many more as yet unwritten).

To hell with it; I’ll write a haiku around one of them.
