Pushing the mower

Standing at the sink

Nursing the baby


Run for my notebook

Scribble a few lines.

Returning later

Word dump.

Later still

What a mess.


Moving lines

Beginning to end

Middle deleted.

Sleep on it

Another word dump.

Smooth the edges with fine grit.

More sleep.

Return of the hacksaw.

Pruning shears

Those funny scissors the hairdresser uses

To take away bulk.

Carving words.

Find the middle

End to beginning





*using the Write Alm prompt, fluid.

I have been editing for two weeks. Nothing makes you understand the properties of fluids more than editing your work.
