This, from last August.... It's important I keep my finger on this pulse as I revise.
It's taken a while, but I've discovered the theme of my book is touch and connections.
I'm not sure how knowing theme matters when the thing is already manifested. I sure didn't think about it going in. Themes are funny things.They sneak in over time and one day, you flip back a shutter and there it is, a sleeping bat clinging to the wall, it's eyes scrunched shut and muttering "Good. She can't see me."
Not much of a reach for a stitcher, this tactile thing. There's just no denying it.
