"Why can't I work faster?" I asked Pete during a recent phase of self-hatred.
(I'm finishing the Goblin cartoon "Goblin Quest" at the moment, and it feels like the slowest work I've ever done.)
"Because you're doing twice as much as usual, you idiot," came Pete's reply. (He didn't even glance up from the Monster Club page he was sorting out on his computer.)
He's right. And it is official. I'm an idiot.
