you and the missing link.

A nice thing about guitar is that, since I'm doing it for fun, when it gets hard/I hit a frustrating plateau, I can walk away and ignore it for three or six months, and when I come back, sometimes my subconscious will have worked through the issue and it'll be fun again and I'll be better at it.

Since I started making my living writing, I don't get to do that anymore when I hit a plateau. It's like hitting a slump in the major leagues: all you can do is soldier on and keep swinging until the breakthrough occurs.

Which probably leads to the problem fixing itself faster, but boy, sometimes it's a wrestling match I'm not sure I can win.

Ah well. This seems to be one of the good bits. Those are nice too.
