  1. That is a very practical quote. People have no idea how hard it is to be a good editor of your own production.

    1. Interesting. I hadn't thought of it much (being so non-artistic) but it really struck me when I read it.

  2. Same goes for writing, of course. I'll have to get over to Belle's Nest next time I need to buy a gift. Everything looks wonderful!

    1. Yes, I had only thought of it in terms of writing. I read this piece on writing, and it was written by Steinbeck. He said that if say, a certain line doesn't fit in, sometimes you just have to let it go. No matter how much you may like it. That really changed my view of things.

  4. Oh, so true. There must be first drafts.
