Amanda, it’s exactly the research that’s the problem here! If I could just plunk myself down at my desk at 6 am every day and let words pour out, I’d stand a shot at getting somewhere. But first there’s that pesky business of having something to say, and that requires my actually taking the time to read some stuff, make some notes, ponder and rearrange, and so forth. If only it were all in there, just waiting to be accessed through particularly skillful typing.

And thanks for the empathy, Collin. I can use all the luck I can get — but if you have some spare hours you’d be willing to share, I’d be happy to take those, too. 🙂
