sticking to my five-minute rule has been a minor saving grace, lately. i haven’t been able to do quantity work, but the little i have been able to do has already produced a much, much tighter and more readable result.* even this evening, these past few minutes of work before bed meant the final smoothing touches on a conversation that was okay as it was, but is now much more true-sounding, to me.
here’s hoping others agree.
and here’s to a good night’s sleep.
* yes, i’m revising as i go still. sue me.
