Fractions

“Writing is probably one-fifth coming up with the stuff, and four-fifths self-editing again and again and again.”

David Mitchell

This is so true.  The number of times I have read and re-read and re-written the same pages of work doesn’t bear thinking about, and equally, the number of fabulous sounding ideas I have had that I haven’t fully developed keeps stacking up. I suppose that just comes with being a writer.
