A Calm Settling

The Emotional Feeling of Finishing a First Draft of my Memoir Manuscript.

A Calm Settling

A calm settling– the marathon over. At least for now. New race set to begin in two weeks, but for now– calm; rest; peace.

No, I havenʻt taken up running again– not with my body anyway. Last night I finished and printed out my complete manuscript– first draft revision. 111 pages; 25,291 words. 2,291 words too many– I will need to cut as I resume revision.

But this morning– a calm settling. Maikʻi, e Ric. (Good work, Ric.)
