Got some feedback on my essay-in-progress. Most insightful comment (and the one I hear most often in response to my drafts): Don’t wait so long to get to the good stuff. Too much wind-up, too much delaying. Timing, pacing, and organizing…same as it ever was. I wonder if I’ll ever get to a point when I don’t have this problem. I think I know how to fix it (condense and cut), but the effort will require some concentrated time alone…not in the cards this weekend.
