So much for creativity. I have spent something like six hours on one footnote. One. And do you know what’s really irritating? The footnote already existed. So why fix something that isn’t broken? I don’t know my friends, all I know is that I often create tragic issues when I really do not need to. I’ve been re-writing the same for hours, cutting and pasting, moving things around, re-writing, re-deleting. Then I checked my biorhythms and thanked my lucky stars for them. My intellectual one is nose-diving today which made me really happy. When my editor asks me ‘what’s this crap?’, I’ll be able to blame several people at once and now my biorhythms as well. I feel better already.
