Another post ABOUT “The Book of Carver”

Hi readers, and thank for indeed reading along. This post is for you and your curiosities. The “book” is an obvious work in progress. I am literally posting this as I write–no editing. What this means is that the flow is mostly nonsense. I will probably write to Chapter 12, and then I will begin a process of reflection and deep revision, molding the story into a work that makes sense to me. Currently it’s nothing more than mind-wanderings. I thank you for taking your time to read these bits of creation, and I hope that they are compelling enough in concept to encourage you to keep posted. Also, if you have any thoughts, critiques, suggestions, comments or would just like to say hello, please leave a message for me. Thanks again!

Happy trails  –Daphne
