french cooking

you are like a bouillabaisse
or a flambé
a dash of what and a pound of who
complicated and too long to create
salty yet refined
and full of too many ingredients
that I do not have

a celery stick or a poached egg I would prefer
for these are simple
and then perhaps I would walk to the corner store and get some gum
were you not taking so long in the oven

    Ah, Kathan. You are quite the foodie!!

    Did you decide to take the Holly Lisle course or not? I’m curious. I am not taking it, but I definitely need some more direction than I am giving myself.

    Of course, on deeper examination, I am realizing that my NaNo novel needs more — much more — than a little work and I don’t know how worthwhile it is to do more with it. I guess we all have doubts…..

      I was inspired by Julie & Julia, I think!

      I decided that I am not going to take the Holly Lisle course b/c of cost, mainly. I went ahead and bought the book I mentioned by James Scott Bell, which seems pretty thorough.

      I am in the same place as you. I feel like the story is good, but I am not sure how well I wrote it. I had originally thought it was okay and would need a little work. But with separation, I also realized it needs ALOT of work. The hubs is insisting that I work on revising it. So I think I will trust that he sees something in it (since I don’t) and start revising.

      At the very least, this will be an excellent exercise, just like writing it was. I can’t learn how to revise if I don’t do it. So even if it’s still not that great, I am hoping I’ll have learned something.
