"There are known-knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known-unknowns; that is to say, we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown-unknowns; the ones we don't know we don't know."- Don Rumsfeld
What if you decide to write a story about your latest project, and you wanted to include in your story the thinking part and the sequence that goes into it? But right from the beginning, you constantly become reminded of other things kind of related to building a library, but kind of not. Then you come up with these small side-line topics and do some digging into each, with the resources that are available to you. But then you worry, that somewhere out there you are missing this huge amount of important information that later might make your efforts appear dreadfully....... dreadful. No, distracted. Something reminds me of something else, and that reminds me of something else. I say to myself, "Pull yourself together-Man!" This isn't brain surgery. Well, in this case, it is, sort of. Focus, stay engaged. Can you write things this way? Or will it cause people to worry about you? Oh well, I am going to go for it anyway.
