Long Live My Bonsai


Do other writers...




  • cool their overheating laptops on a bag of frozen peas

  • have the strange habit of using a unique word, then absent-mindedly using it again, so those identical words are too close together in the manuscript and one must be excised,

  • worry that their last sale will be their last sale,

  • feel as though they’re constantly floating in a strange state of manuscript submission limbo,

  • decide several times a day that they’d rather have their tombstone say “author” than “her house was always immaculate,” and

  • spend time reviving a dying Bonsai tree for inspiration



like I do?
