I must be slipping in my old age. Time was I could stay awake for thirty six hours straight and not feel it, but now I try and simply stay awake at 6 in the morning to write a few paragraphs and all I can think about is wanting to sleep.
Also I question the quality of the writing, but there’s a time, a place, and a mindset for editing; and it’s usually not 6 AM, lying on the couch, drinking absinthe. Whatever the quality of the writing turns out to be will be touch-and-go, it could be anything, but that’s why we edit in the first place, or rather second place. Things are never perfect the first time around.
Thank you for not believing.
