I won't be doing that again

Editing, sweet editing...it's good to see you again!

Last night after I gave in to temptation and posted this without edits, I settled down to go to bed. Then my head began to hurt. Throb. I rarely get headaches; I can't remember the last time I took Tylenol or Advil. So I laid down and started reading the second Harry Potter book (yep...I'm hooked) and thought my headache would go away. I'd been stressing a bit about getting that post written so I figured, whew, it's done let's read and go to sleep.

Not so fast. I couldn't get that stupid post out of my head. I think that's what caused the headache! I was thinking about all the errors and poorly structured or blah sentences I PUBLISHED. Knowingly. The whole experience was like nails on a chalkboard, not exhilarating and fun. I should have let that high school English memory remain a memory.

So thankyouverymuch but free-blogging is one post idea that I should have let die. (Die! Die! Die!)

Ahhhh, that feels better...who needs Tylenol?
