The structural…

The structural problems I set for myself in writing, in a long, snarled, frustrating and sometimes despairing morning of work, for instance, I can usually unsnarl by running in the afternoon.

On days when I can’t run, I don’t feel “myself”; and whoever the “self” is I feel, I don’t like nearly so much as the other. And the writing remains snarled in endless revisions.
