On the Revision Process for "Recurring Apart-ment"
by Megan Hanlon
This fragmented essay sprung out of a Literary Cleveland Flash Fiction Fest workshop hosted by Kathy Fish. It pivots between descriptions of a recurring dream I’ve had over the last couple of years, and my feelings about being a stay-at-home and work-from-home mother of two. It took months for me to realize that my dreams were a response to the enormous responsibilities and challenges of life as a wife and mother, and a longing to have my own space both physically and emotionally.
