I finished the first large organizational pass of The Fucker. Now I’m trying to stay at the table long enough to incorporate all the changes scrawled on my manuscript pages. I tried not to look at the little stuff, but instead thought about order and framing.
I have no business being online at all, but there are a few plum darlings I have killed, and I would like to mourn their passing.

And, speaking of cold-blooded murder, I completely stole that idea from DP. So I probably had to cut it.
My sister gave her a stuffed dog, which I thought was terribly infantilizing. And yet, she kept the dog with her. She did not hug it, but it was often on her lap or on the side of her bed.

My mother was a revenant.
I think that might be a sci fi reference, and may not mean anything outside of the genre.
What darlings have you killed?
