On Writing ...
No passion in the world is equal to the passion to alter someone else's draft.
-- H. G. Wells (1866-1946)
Sometimes, no matter how much you love to write, the spark just doesn't happen. On those days, my life goes a little something like this...
5 cups coffee + keyboard + enthusiasm = first draft
first draft + editor = writer kicking chair
kicking chair + cussing = mildly sedated writer
2nd draft + edits - original enthusiasm = well crafted article
finished article + editor = writer with deranged expression = wrap-up = 5 cups of Sleeytime Tea to take the edge off
Next day ... Begin again...
