The Final Edits

Indira Ganesan, Shimmer, 2012

Over a year ago, my novel was accepted, and I have worked on its various stages before it comes out in print this winter.  To say I am mildly obsessed about it is putting it, well, mildly.  When my last book came out, the towers were still with us, the X-Files were on the air, and I had never see a Whole Foods.  I had just learned to use email and had my first account;my first messages were telegramatically  terse.  Now, all this time later, I am going over the final edits, what is known as a “second pass” slowly.

I am on page 119.

I took a walk and a neighbor pointed out flocks of butterflies on buddleia.
