Progress in qualitative terms (number of pages per day?) has been slow. But there is something else going on which I can only explain with a gaming analogy.
You know those games where, at later points, the story-line leads you back to levels you’ve already crossed? You know that feeling you get when you—now equipped with much stronger weaponry and vastly-improved skill—return to those areas you once slaved through, now to just demolish the opposition with surprising prowess?
That’s kinda how it’s been, revisiting just about anything from the years passed. And that’s fucking awesome.
