@MoustacheClubUS Thanks, Oliver. And thank goodness for deadlines, which force me to set self-doubt aside.
@MoustacheClubUS As I sit here procrastinating on my next piece...yes, all of the above
This probably reads as terrible sucking up but there is nothing like taking a piece as far as you think you can take it and then getting help. It's honestly one of the best things about writing—the part where it's finally collaborative, not solitary.
Writing can feel like such a slog, especially when you have no idea how to fix something, so it's a relief to work with someone who GETS it. Sensitive, smart editing is worth its weight in gold and all other good things. @RachelFeltman, I'm looking at you.
