Final .... Draft.... Oxymoron

All right. I was soooo ready to call the final the final...

My dear editor/coach/friend had different ideas. Still very happy with meter and verse - rhymes all work well...

She's not happy with the ending.... Says it needs more punch.....

Back to the drawing board, dear friends. A change to one line or one word can take hours to 'fix' for the rest of the piece. I liked the ending - but I could sense a bit of unease whenever I re-read it. 

I shall endure.... She's right, of course. *g*

Life is perturbingly predictable.

  2. WOW - that is a great quote. And so confoundedly correct.
