This was very encouraging today. I struggled for days as I was writing my latest post. I read my sources. I thought. I planned, and I wrote, but nothing seemed to fall into place. It was too long, I told myself. So I cut a third of it away to work on as a separate post another day. I proofread until I never wanted to see it again, hoping in the process I could find a few more words to trim. I worked on it until 4 am this morning, and told myself probably no one would read it, but it was time to submit it. When I got up at 11 I saw it had not only been published, but curated. So one just never knows.
