breaking my shin on the very first rung.

but sometimes
the next morning
I'll re-read an overwritten email
or an overwrought IM conversation
maybe the draft of a non-fictional story

and I'll think to myself:

"you're not so bad.
but keep getting better."

and knowing that you're out there
somewhere
reading every day
makes that road a bit simpler
and makes those potholes
that much easier to handle.
