    Yes, we are (all crazy). For my Thomas Edison book I did exactly the same sorts of thnigs, poring over his notebooks and drawings (and spending money I didn’t have to buy a book that contained his own recollections of his childhood, in his own words, even with his own spelling! I spent hours and hours looking at his patent drawings online, even though I couldn’t understand the scientific details of any of them! I found a recording made at his INventing Factory (he and his inventors used to stay up working all night and somebody sometimes would play the banjo or piano and they’d all sing).ANd in the end, no one bought the book. That is one of the other driven, irrational parts of this: you HAVE TO do your best, whether anyone ever publishes it or not.I wonder sometimes if all the rewriting I do is “worth it” — I’ve tried to stop myself from doing it but I can’t. And maybe there is a rational reason for this: If I don’t write something as well and vividly as I can, using the right words,the BEST words, for what I’m trying to say, what’s the point? I might as well then (in Anna’s wonderful phrase) “dress up in a suit a suit every day and be an accountant or something.”
