The Lilac Years: the struggle continues…

I have continued to take it slow with The Lilac Years. Time for an update…

I have made numerous small edits over the last few weeks, but today I did something unusual (for me): I cut an entire section.

Normally, I will have one section devoted to poems that address topical subjects. The Lilac Years was to be no exception. But, as I was making more small edits today, I realized that several of the poems in that ‘topical’ section don’t fit the way I would like them to, in that they are too specific. After moving one poem to another section, I deleted the ‘topical’ section altogether.

This means the book is that much closer to being finished. I do have a couple of projects (one paid, one not) to complete first; then I can take another, closer look for any last-minute stuff, and think about a proper release date.

Stay tuned…
