Reading is Hard



Writing is easy. All you have to do is cross out the wrong words.

— Mark Twain

I believe Kurt Vonnegut once wrote that writing is time travel. That by writing, one travels though time (and space), connecting with an unknown reader somewhere in the future, melding the mind of writer and reader via an assemblage of black squiggles on a page, sharing one’s worldview. In the process, both writer and reader are improved.
