The secret to good writing is rewriting. The first draft of anything is going to be rubbish. It takes at least three drafts or so to make an historical article or chapter into something presentable. But, I think after today's corrections that my current draft of "Is there a Black Eurasia?: Ghanaian and other Diasporic African Populations in the USSR in Comparative Perspective" has finally reached that level. Of course nothing is ever perfect, but I don't have any more improvements to make until I get some more feed back from other people.
