I spent a great deal of the day trying to write my next article for BC Musician magazine, and all that came out was wordy, boring, pretentious crap. Plus I couldn't think of any of the right words.
A couple of hours after I gave up, I printed off what I had written, sat down in a different place, and reread it. And realised it was actually pretty decent. A few tweaks here and there and it will be passable.
What just happened? Did my standards suddenly plummet? Or am I just being delusional now?
Do you find that sometimes things read better on paper than they do on the computer screen?
