This is one my writer friends can appreciate. How to Read Poetry Like a Professor is coming along very nicely, except for a couple of things. First, the book is about 90% drafted (don’t get too excited–there’s a world of work before it’s a submittable draft). And second, it’s 120% of the contractually specified length. In other words, I’ve spoken too much and not said enough. I bailed on math after Algebra 2, but I’m not seeing any sort of calculation that will bring those together. I guess there’s going to be some chainsaw editing.
