That was unpleasant
I keep thinking back to the plumbing metaphor. This morning I got a couple pages or so, but that’s a bit deceiving, because more than half of one page was all cross-outs. Frustrating, contrived, forced, completely off-target, manipulated, mangled and generally not my best stuff. I did finally get through it, I think, and there is a light at the end of the tunnel, but wow. It was like pulling teeth for a while, there.*
I am not looking forward to the revision there.
* From plumbing to dental metaphors. Hm.
