some thought much anguish, I was able to help The Boy figure out the right answer mathematically. But I got to wondering about this author who wrote four pages in three hours. How long would it really take her to write 24 pages if we kept ridiculous things like math out of it and focused on more important factors like:
the lure of the internet
the critic in her head
(Here I must stress these are entirely hypothetical factors…)
So what’s the real answer? Class? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
