Microfiction in microseconds
It's become a habit now, turning on the computer in the ridiculous hours of the morning to write, if only for ten minutes. Enough for a sentence or two, maybe. But I'm at that point in my new manuscript where that's how things are -- sentence by sentence, or as Anne Lamott might say, bird by bird. I hunt and peck for things that are not quite right, a little incongruous, not exactly the phrasing I meant. Somehow in the grogginess of the pre-coffee morning, that much is clear.
