I am irritated by my own writing. I am like a violinist whose ear is true, but whose fingers refuse to reproduce precisely the sound he hears within.
—Gustave Flaubert

Yeah, been there. Sometimes, the ideas inside the head just won’t come out precisely through the fingertips. It’s as if there’s a clog somewhere in the funnel.

Until the right combination of words come along, approximations will have to do sometimes, but I’m not particularly fond of them because they interrupt the flow. I’m not a draft writer and I edit while I go. I like to have a good sentence or paragraph before I move to the next. Often, the problem solves itself the morning after when I read through the text with fresh eyes. Thank goodness for the overnight funnel cleaning crew.
