“ Sit down and put down everything that comes into your head and then you’re a writer. But an author is one who can judge his/ her own stuff’s worth, without pity, and destroy most of it.” —Sidonie-Gabrielle Collette
These two lines have held my attention all of last week, because I’ve been revising some of my work. And “without pity” just about describes almost everything I’ve done to my drafts.
I need to sit down and revise my writing more often.
