Surviving Revision

I spent the weekend traveling and revising.  Mostly, I was revising while I was traveling.  I find both actions exhausting, but I wanted to work on the poems we went through last week during my Chautauqua workshop.  I was happy with four of them — happy enough, that is, to send them out today.  During the rest of this week, I will be attending another workshop at Chautauqua (with poet Rick Hilles) where I hope to get some new writing done.  After working on so much revision, I’m ready for some new stuff.
