This is, in other words, going quite well right just this second.

I think part of the problem I had with Chill was that I got so invested in writing forward on it that I forgot that I work best in an iterative fashion, circling back over and over and getting a feel for the structure an revising and reworking as I go. Really, you would think by now I would know better than to try to force my brain into a linear pattern, but even people who know better can get suckered into trying to write "the right way," and of course whoever set up those arbitrary rules for what's right and what's wrong was just discussing what worked--or what they wished would work--for them.
