Starting here, your story repeats — published — in chunks. I feel that some of your recent stories have suffered from being published too quickly, as though you haven’t taken the time to thoroughly proof them like you did previously. This goof-up is an (extreme) example. Since one of the cardinal rules of succeeding as a writer (which both of us have previously stated) is proofing the work for errors, I believe you need to take a step back and do more rereading of your work before publishing. Just my opinion.

Writer, copy/line editor. Writing in science, society, environment, injustice, and mental health. Also personal essays. And some random weirdness.
