I wrote last week that I’m busy editing/rewriting my novel, so here’s something I picked up from the Write For Your Life website by Iain Broome:
Excerpt from http://writeforyourlife.net/writing-responsibility
How many writers does it take to change a light bulb?
It takes just one writer to change a light bulb. Sure, you can get your pals, your partner or your significant literary other to hold the ladder, but only you can do the dirty work. In the end, it’s about being responsible for the creative process. In good times and in bad. You’re the writer. No one else.
Comment from Martin Cooper:
How many literary agents does it take to change a light bulb?
None. It’s a really nice light bulb, they enjoyed switching it on and they loved the way it glowed, but they don’t think this is quite the right evening. Perhaps when it gets darker.
