There was a little girl, with a little curl,
right in the middle of her forehead.
When she was good, she was very very good,
But when she was bad, she was horrid.
Funny how we learn stuff from our grandmothers. This taught me an important truth-- that people can be both good and bad, that things aren't always black or white.
In writing, it's not so much a matter of talent or no talent, but perseverance and passion. Are you a good writer or a bad one? Answer: Yes. You are both. Me, too.
I can be very very good or when I am bad, I can be horrid. Brilliant writing mixed with awful. The secret is knowing which is which and fixing it. The delete key is a very helpful tool.
That's what editing is all about. It's taking out the bad so the good can shine. So don't think you're a bad writer. Or a good one. You are both. We all are. Delete, delete, delete.
