Andrew does some work – shock

Phew. I’ve just finished a big project that’s been a weight around my neck for far too long. This was, of course, entirely my own fault. I’ll check it over tomorrow then send it off. Amusingly, I spent Friday afternoon, most of yesterday, and this morning working on the first draft. I then went for a walk to clear my head, read it over and swiftly realised much of it was utter toss. So I scrapped 75% of it and started again. Four hours of manic typing later I’m happy with the end result. Gotta hope it’ll still seem ok in the morning…

It’s been surprisingly pleasant to work on something difficult. Most of the computer problems I’ve looked at recently have been of the nonsensical change-things-until-it-starts-working variety, which is more frustrating than anything else. It’s been too long since I was last ‘in the zone’, which is a shame – I like being there.
