SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) If you don't mind me asking, what was it that you were doing? Please do not share specifics if you do not feel comfortable doing so, but are you sure it was completely unproductive? Also, I am not sure how helpful it is to focus this much on what other people did, as the social comparison does not seem to be making it easier to write the letters. You might be downplaying your own work.
