It just never ends...

I still keep trying to write my conclusions for this chapter, and every time I sit down to outline what I've already got so I can see (and thus sum up) my main points, I see another thing that really belongs somewhere else, another paragraph of infelicitous prose, another example of why I need to rethink my decision twelve years ago to give up a promising career as a barista....

You're probably moving the stuff that doesn't belong into footnotes, too, eh? Eh? **titter**

Patience helps. Patience with self helps more. Do you have the luxury of taking a day off? Being nice to yourself?

Hang in there. Someday, the words will fall out of your pen (or fingers, if you compose electronically) and you'll realize you've finished it. That moment will make these seem less traumatic. Promise.

Thank you, Belle.

NNR, I'm actively avoiding adding discursive footnotes, and trying to move them to the text whenever possible. So, Nyah.
