  1. Thank you so much for recording this one. I’ve really been struggling with what is meant by “Do not rewrite unless to editorial demand” and this fleshed it out for me beautifully. I just re-listened to it like 3 times in a row to really try and get it to sink in. So NO! You did not bore me whatsoever. On the contrary. Thank you so much! Hopefully I can meet you in person some day and thank you with a handshake and maybe a drink.
