Dorothy Parker

Dorothy Parker once said, “I can’t write five words but that I change seven.” That’s what I’ve been doing for the past several days…changing words. At the half-way point, I go back and read what I’ve written so far to see if it hangs together and try to fix it if it doesn’t.

It’s a scary proposition because I always know I’m going to have to throw some things out. The trick is to know what to trash and what to keep.
