How does that work, eh?
You post twelve pieces, and you had missed one,
the weakest, which then ends up the first one people read.
A word on flash-blasting.
It's not about the single flash.
It's about the body of work, the undoing of the gate, the change in sensibility, the production of 30-50 first drafts (remember these are as-were straight off the hot keyboard drafts)
And usually you will see (in any author that aims for maximum) a subtle change in the quality towards the middle of the period, followed by a dip and often a brilliant piece about day 20-25
