Of course, that is not how it's going to happen, and I'm worried the name will be something like Magical Barrio Stories, but that doesn't quite capture the essence of the collection.
I have also been thinking a lot about the kinds of writing I like and how much time I actually need to spend on my craft. I want to spend the time my work deserves from the words to sentences to passages and that may be part of the reason the collection is taking longer than I expected. Regular work has also been busy. However, I am going to start revising the novel on days I don't have the energy to write.
I just have to rethink my writing schedule, as union obligations and papers pile up. I find that I am sneaking writing time between meetings and grading. I put in about an hour today and will spend a few more minutes writing before I go to bed. I just miss having a morning block. Maybe tomorrow I will be able to get up at early.
Well, it's time to write or revise or pass out while watching cooking documentaries.
Hang on to that thread. #barriobules
