Day #18 Quotes for Writers


“Your manuscript is both good and original, but the part that is good is not original, and the part that is original is not good.” Samuel Johnson

This reminds me so much of the feedback editors give.
“Your submission would be good, except that it isn’t.”
Now, that’s helpful!
Sometimes you just have to laugh and not take yourself or this writing business too seriously.
