The successful dig minutiae.

On the one hand, I agree. Many successful persons do in fact dig the details. On the other hand though, sometimes the simplicity of zero details and just a well communicated human (or other)truth can be just as effective. Now back to the one hand. On that one hand, which for our purposes, we'll suppose it was a left hand, there are five fingers...

I guess this would work for the fine line stuff to, but I'm to tired to carry it over.

There's a difference between being through and being anal. When I sit down in InDesign or some other Adobeish product, I wind up spending alot of time dragging out guides and doing alignment.

Is there hope for me?

too, not to. and thorough, not through. they say the most successful of writers spend the entire morning, afternoon, and evening, agonizing over the placement of a comma. Then, close to bedtime, they decide to remove the comma they were finally able to come to grips with placing. i think obsession of that sort is quite beautiful- a kind of "hope" for you and i and every creative- don't plan on a personal life though- the kind of person that finds that kind of obsession attractive is only another creative- and we are all too self-absorbed to date each other. it's a lonely life, being right and gorgeous and precise, constantly. *sigh*
