Draft of the Week, #2.

I don’t think it’s ever happened that I’ve written a first draft straight through before beginning revisions.  I don’t know enough about where a poem’s headed to get it all down right away.  Which is probably one reason the blank page is such a daunting prospect.  Yet, when you sit down, neglect your family and stay sat, it all works:  I present you the second installment of my Draft of the Week series.  I’ll leave it up until Monday some time.

  1. marie, all my comments start, “oh, Marie” — and this one is really no different. This is wonderful. You seem to be in a really productive place, and I’m thrilled to be able to catch glimpses of it.

  2. Thank you, Lily. I hope I’m in a good place, writing-wise, but it’s a surprise, and a relief, every time.
