I was hoping to get more than one reply today. Hopefully the dialogue continues.

It does, but the boards have to play second fiddle to my actual job and the rest of my offline life most days, and to make matters worse I tend to be an incredibly inefficient writer--I take waaaay more time carefully trying to articulate things than I imagine most people probably do, with a lot of writing, editing, tweaking, rewriting, and walking away for a minute or two and pondering what to say next or how to word things to get my point across.

This post, for example? A solid fifteen minutes. No, wait, make that twenty once I take into account the time I just took to check to see exactly how much time it's taken so far and to write and edit this little addendum. I need to quit now while I'm ahead.

Fair enough. There are only so many hours in a day.

That sounds about normal for me. A post about 1.5x your size takes me 30-40 minutes, and that's not including any breaktime that may occur in the middle (I frequently get called away by meatspace for minutes to half an hour at a time).
