Late Night Post On Practice Makes Perfect

Developmental argument: Practice makes perfect. I look at stuff I wrote when I was thirteen and think, "who was that?"

Retrospect argument: I look at stuff I wrote yesterday and think, "ain't perfect but better."

Words I tell myself: Experience contributes to the adage practice makes perfect.

Invasion of the Body Snatchers: Or maybe writing is simply creating several versions of oneself.

Psychopathology of Everyday Life: It is spooky to find something in a discarded notebook with your name inscribed at the top but the contents are alien to your very sense of being.
