This next season, I am committing to more presence in my everyday, and this will allow me to revise One Man Reservation with a fuller sense of what is possible, less of having something to prove.
If I listen, the lyric prose I want to inform the work is already there, thrumming with energy, eager to marry the prose line with the blood line. I am beholden to these characters; no one else will dive into their world and swim to the borders of their experiences and return to the surface of the story, language the conduit and the bridge.
With humility, I surrender to the process and privilege and responsibility of being a storyteller, desiring only to be renewed by the creative work and what it has to teach me.
Let’s double down (gracefully), revision.
