Perhaps the date is different wherever you are, but here in North America, early June days are about as perfect as a day can get. The weather is not yet intensely hot, but pleasantly warm, so that one can go about barefooted and bare armed without a care for layers of protection. Roadside stands blossom and supermarkets are aisles of delight; it’s as if the whole world is fruiting and blooming to provide for and entice us.
Just as a plum can reach perfection in its development, our work can also come to fruition from all our months of preparation. I’m working hard to bring one novel into just that exquisite state. There’s more to do. Still, things are flowing well and it feels like the end is in sight.
So many things we take on faith; one of them is that, if we keep shaping and honing our sentences, paragraphs, and chapters, we’ll reach a real state of cohesion that represents the best we can do.
I hope that state is near for you with at least one project. If not, I wish you strong faith that you are on your way to fulfillment.
On our way to completion we all need a word of encouragement and hope.
Please, if you read these words, leave me a bit of feedback in the comments section below. Tell me what you are doing with your work, and, I promise, I will reply.
That is how we feed each other.
That is our article of faith here at Weaver’s Knot, as surely as we all take spring as a sign of the bounty to come.
