Some writing is a pleasure, like this blog. A little whim that emerges in text as I sit at the keyboard. I can write whatever takes my fancy and I try to stick to one paragraph. Sometimes it’s harder to write something shorter than longer, but I enjoy the crafting. Writing an academic paper is a different thing altogether and always fraught with fears that I won’t succeed. All the more joy, then when I write a paper into existence. Even if it still needs editing, the feeling of success arrives when it becomes structurally complete and contains all the necessary parts.
