Could be another wasted afternoon...
I've ended up this afternoon going back to and fiddling with something I wrote quite a while ago. To be honest, I was looking for another file on my computer and saw this one as I was scrolling down. I remembered spending some time on it and so I opened it up to have a look. I had more or less abandoned it because it was, I came to see, a bit flabby in places and half-baked in others. But I have now spent the afternoon thinking that maybe, just maybe, with a tweak here and a trim there, there might be something worth salvaging. Surely it can't all be hopeless?
Oh dear. I'm not very good at just writing off the work and chalking it up to experience. After all, it would be odd if a significant proportion of what I type out were not in fact pretty useless. But arrogance or sheer bloody-mindedness tells me otherwise.
