  1. I sym­path­ise with your edit­ing slog. I’ve just about fin­ished the ‘final’ edit of Adventure Eddy, which has actu­ally taken as long as writ­ing the ori­gin­al book took! It’s VERY dif­fer­ent from the raw draft I’ve been post­ing on adventureeddy.blogspot.com — some would say almost pub­lish­able.

    I’m not hugely poet­ic­al in my writ­ing, but I think it’s fair to say that your writ­ing skills are a little more soph­ist­ic­ated than mine. However, I think any writer occa­sion­ally gets a stab of pleas­ure when they put togeth­er an espe­cially aes­thet­ic­ally pleas­ing turn of phrase.

  2. It’s my chem­istry class I got that trouble­some word from — unfor­tu­nately, the teach­er only spoke it! Which was very unfor­ward­think­ing of him.

    I don’t know if you’ve come across this one, Maxine, but I first heard RLS’s Requiem as part of this Audible.com ‘Best Poems of All Time’. Lots of oth­er clas­sics there too.
