Well, I technically hit my quota. But wow, writing and writing well are different things, aren’t they? I wrote a poem to really express my feelings:
It’s just the first draft,
I can fix it later.
It’s not the final draft,
Don’t be a hater.
Just try not to look at it.

There was a lot of good news too. For one, the LaTeX formatting is downright beautiful in the new template. For another, considering my dedication to a philosophy of comprehension-by-baby steps, hitting the daily word count isn’t going to be hard. It’ll be much harder to eventually cull the herd. I’m happy to see that the ideas are easy, and I’m spending most of my cognitive power on proper
- I should get another impartial reader or two, and nontechnical ones at that. They’ll ask good questions and suggest good improvements.
- I should create a system to make that easier. Or steal one.
- That said, word count is more important right now than organization. Don’t slow down.
That’s enough self-indulgence for now.
