I've spent the morning "sewing." That is, I've ironed, futzed around with pinning, and struggled to figure out what I'm trying to do. The sewing machine hasn't been involved. One thing I usually think about with sewing is how I usually do spend a lot more time using the iron than the sewing machine, and how it's the most important step in not making a garment look home made. I wonder how many amateur writers think that writing is just about what happens when you're sitting at the typewriter. While not an essential step, staring at the ceiling is also a part of writing.
