Gaslight on a Sunday night, Kay Ryan on a Monday night.

Do you spend a long time revising?

RYAN

When I do rewrite—a week later, a month, or maybe a year later—it’s not very much. I might have to add a little bit or turn two lines around or cut a little bit, change a word, or replace a line. I almost always fiddle around some more with the lineation. Sometimes I have to hold on to something for years before I have an ending.
