Editing something recently written is like waking up from a beautiful dream to find the alarm clock is ringing and you go to shut off the alarm clock but you manage to break it, and it is still ringing. You pick up the large chunks and they fall into smaller chunks and the ringing is even louder and you’re trying to hold on to the dream. You finally pull off the blanket and step onto one of the sharp chunks of your alarm clock, which is in pieces, like your dream, and you are utterly awake and the ringing stops.
