Progress is a unidirectional word. There may be declines, regressions, stasis.
July 12: Two weeks went !Poof One thing happened: I asked for sponsors and actually got them. Writing-wise, I will be able to meet my own goals, which is to have the two stories “ready” enough I could have brought them to the table at CW, but life-wise? Sheesh. Things are hopping, and I’m really bad at whack-a-mole.
June 29: Progressaroo on the horse story. Not done, but you know, I carve every word out of mountain air. Nothing on poor Margaret. Three new poems for the Nancy & Gloria fiasco: Here’s part …
There were complications in the meadows:
two pink calves died.
Whatever they might have brought
June 22: 10K+ index completed, but “partial circumcision by crow” was deleted during authorial review. Not brutally, with an apology. 241 words of Nancy & Gloria. Thought about poor Margaret. A horse named Annie died, euthanized after someone cut her tongue out.
What I Write
Margaret Fuller’s Ghost:
The Eternal Tragedy of Sarah Margaret Fuller, Marchioness Ossola
Her Captain died of smallpox off Gibralter. But the brig, Elizabeth, her sails limp, then chattering, kept on, covering all those nautical miles until the wind jammed her against the rocks off Fire Island.
Her cargo included a book, a baby, and the best-read mind on Earth.
|What I Write||
indexes for other writer’s books, mostly
things that pass for novels in certain lights and circumstances

My Write-a-thon Goals
• finish a story about a murderous quarter horse
•finish a thing about Margaret Fuller’s ghost I started at Clarion 2012. I poked it today, and IT LIVES! Anywho, the writing sample is the first lines of it.
I’d like at least five supporters to give $5 to Clarion. I will send you either the Margaret or the horse story to you on July 28th, the day the write-a-thon ends.
