I can write all night but in the morning I can't read itI'm rewriting a Web page for an ad agency this weekend (my first agency gig!), and those words came to mind early this morning as I scribbled several hundred words longhand on a notepad next to the bed (you have to record those moments of creative inspiration whenever they come). Anyone who has seen my handwriting will tell you it's downright atrocious -- people say I should have been a doctor -- and that's when I have enough light to see what I'm writing.
Fortunately, I can read what I wrote last night. I didn't stay within the lines, but at least I didn't write words on top of each other (been there). Whether any of it will end up in the final copy, I don't know yet. But it's a workable rough draft, which is quite a bit further along than I was when I went to sleep last night.
