@jkreeftmeijer *looking over at the 8 pieces I recently tossed for no real good reason*
I have no idea what that word means. 🤐

@Dinoracha the ”starting over” part is crucial. Without that, just going ahead and publishing the first draft is probably the better way to go. :)

@jkreeftmeijer For sure, just whenever I have a draft my old pal self-doubt comes in screeching to toss it. My old pal is also a jerk.
