I've been really unhappy with the gypsy story. I probably should have held off on posting it, but I felt bad for my already excessive delay.
This week I finally cleaned up some of the worst grammatical offenses, but then I realized that it had pretty big stylistic problems too. I don't even know why this bothered me so much; it is not like I am writing Madame Bovary here. But my ego is a truly wondrous thing and it demanded that I redo the story. Twice.
I guess I like it more now? Maybe. I'm probably just not a talented enough writer to capture the elusive gypsy spirit with my words.
