On this first day, I posted the first completed draft, which is to say, the handwritten draft in my notebook that I felt I had come to a stopping point. Every day, I’ll post one working draft before I begin a revision for the work to be sent to Tupelo Press. While this wasn’t my first idea, this was the first idea that came out on paper. I was thinking about when I was kid and going to LAX for a trip. The whole airport was a kind of wonder palace. You had moving sidewalks, baggage claims, the terminals, comic books, and candy. Over the years, and dozens of airports later, I found them to be expensive boring places. Maya gets excited to go on trips, so even the taxi ride is a special thing, and I felt a bit of that old excitement when we got ready for our trip last year. If you would like to sponsor me, please find the details in my earlier post.
