I’m an artist.  When I can’t make art (much of the time), I write.

Most of my writing, especially the poems, is pretty dil se, but not very good.  I keep working on it.  I hope that one day my words will carry the grace of my feelings.

This editing blog lets me see how each piece evolves.  It can take months to get ready to do an edit, as I learn more about writing and myself through patience, partial mental edits, and reading others’ work.

Follow the evolution of how I’m learning to write at The Heather Garden.
