I Really Should Be Editing….

Over the Labor Day weekend, I finished another chapter of my new book.  As I finished, I realized that I haven’t done any editing in a long time.  I have just been busy plowing through my chapters, spitting them out as quick as possible.  Now I don’t want to disrupt the creative juices, but I also don’t want to have a huge pile of papers to go over.  The last time I did that my brain nearly melted and I ended up missing a lot of stuff.

But I have to edit.  I need to make sure that I’m happy with the way everything flows before I really start to get into the meaty portions of the story.  I will edit this weekend.  I have no choice.  It’s time for me to get out the dreaded red marker…sigh.

Until next time folks.

I am so, so, so, so, very tired.  It already feels like I’ve been back for three months.  I think coffee is the only reason why I’m still alive.  But….I love seeing the children.  They all grew so much over the summer.  The new kindergartners are so adorable and it’s nice to be back with my work family.

I know it will take some time for me to get fully back into the swing of things, but I hope this year will be a good year!

See y’all later!!!

The Cleansing

Here I stand on a distant shore

Weary, worn, and broken

From bridges burned and words unspoken.

 

The path I walked was a lonely one

Filled only with silence

And a singular reliance.

 

Here I stand with nowhere to go

Staring out to the sea

Dreaming of a new way to be.

 

Filled with hope for the very first time

I walk carefully into the surf

Seeking the road to my rebirth.

 

The water washes away

All my suffering and all my pain

Which have long been my life’s bane.

 

Under I go

But only for a moment

To rise clean and free from torment.

 

Light in heart and free in soul

I walk once more towards the shore

Not the person I was before.
