Look, writing is hard.

by jbkeenanjr

It’s like some vile, incurable disease: There are bad days, and there are worse days. And writing well is a two-stage process: (1) write not so well; (2) fix it. Knowing that Stage 2 is coming, you can relax a little during Stage 1; your inner editor will diligently revise the clumsy, turgid bits later.
