"Dividing by Percentages"
On the Revision Process for "Dividing by Percentages"
by Brandon Noel
Prose is hard for me. Even writing this reflection took a fair amount of self-determination. That being the case, I tend to feel fairly insecure or unsure of the small number of prose pieces that I have in my archive, and I’ve sent out an even smaller number of pieces for possible publication. Needless to say, I didn’t submit to Gordon Square Review even expecting to earn a place in their issue, and I was greatly enthusiastic about it, as well as the piece Matt chose “Dividing By Percentages”. When he offered the prose editorial mentorship, I wasn’t too worried about it, because I knew the piece likely needed some work, because of the way it came into being.
