#NewThisDay Writing From My Photo Stream
This morning I woke up in the middle of the night wide awake and chose a poem I wrote a year ago to revise. I've workshopped it, a lot, most recently, at my Truchas poetry retreat. Then I went back to sleep, woke up, went for my walk, revised some more. The feedback I received at Truchas was maybe it needed more. . . something. Which usually means, I've learned to believe, is that it has everything it needs already, and what it really needs is less. So, that's what I did. I took out what made it seem like it needed more, and now, I think, it's just right sized.
