Aaron took that to mean something different. Actually he assumed the rules were different for him OVERALL.

I was an Editor.
He told me dismissively “Editing should not get in the way of writing”
I told him that I wouldn’t let editing get in the way of writing.

I was elated.
Until later that day.
We reach a door and when I say “yeah it’s been really hard” and he says “yeah this is too”
When I pled to Aaron saying what he told me, he never looked at me.
