Working on a Poetry Collection

So, I’ve been hard at work on my poetry collection. While decompressing, I made a visual piece from my slush pile yesterday.

What’s a slush pile you may ask? (Hint: It’s not where I toss the melted popsicles and juice bars from last summer.) It’s really just a document, mostly. I find it’s easier to get my big editing shears out, and employ them, if I have a file to drop those sweet little gems of lines that just don’t fit in a particular poem.

I call it tumble tussle.

September Slushie

If you have a few moments, let me know your thoughts. Do you use a “slushie pile” too? What helps you gain distance on your work, and make those all important edits?
