This one is not mine, but it always makes me laugh, and it sets the right tone...
These two I made, so....
Not ALL of them. SimpLY not!
Because I spent years honing my craft to act on my own ideas,
and not to be insulted by someone's thoughtless notion that:
a.) I don't have my own creativity
b.) the idea is the 'hard part' of writing
and it is worth half
c.) if their great idea isn't worth
their own time effort, why should
they presume it is worth mine?
That said, I always encourage folks who approach me about this
(usually at signings) to write it themselves because
what they will learn about writing
and about themselves
in the process
is worth their time and effort.
