Wednesday I will talk for the first time with a professional author consultant about my manuscript. The first 50 pages. And, I have 22 pages left to edit. Editing has mostly been a process of cutting.

There’s been very little visual work going on — for long enough that it feels as though something is missing. The garden looks gorgeous, though.

Yesterday I played with cloth that was next to the couch on the floor. Finished Season 3 of Longmire.

A friend with a huge aloe plant gave me a few pieces yesterday. The mother plant looked like something from a science fiction movie — as if it might lunge and scuttle away.
