niggling thought

If I had spent the hours I've put into training myself to be an academic on writing instead, I would probably have a book out by now. I don't do this for an internal and an external reason: I lack the discipline, and I need an institute to stamp my visa. This is depressing. Some other linguist could write the papers I will publish; whatever its merit, no one else can write the book I would write.
