One Page at a Time: Carving the Marble

“I saw an angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.”

Michelangelo

 

My novel’s word count and page mass prove its manuscript weight, but now it is time to raise the hammer to strike the chisel. Writer’s block is not only for the rough draft; it is for the revision process, too. I circle, study, contemplate, muse as much or more than I did when I drafted the original. At least if I cut too much, I can paste or insert. Unlike Michelangelo. But, like him, I steady my gaze, carve the marble, and listen for the sound of wings.
