when writing in the flow, it's easy to get lost in the endless expanse of words and clauses, drifting from one to the next as they spring forth like so many snowflakes in a frigid winter blizzard

but editing, I comb it over and over like a middle aged priest. check it all two or five times. every word honed to perfection, every sentence a finely tuned machine thrumming with power, every paragraph at its full potential. it's not any less artistic, but margins for both error and profit are slim


I snuck in two stealth puns in the first paragraph, hell yeah

they're both bad and only one of them makes any real sense but whatever
