Eric Idle on Writing

Advice and encouragement from one of my favorites. Be sure to click through and read the whole post.

“Two tips:

1: Work Harder.
2: There is no such thing as bad work, only unfinished work.

I’m not a very good writer but I’m not a bad re-writer.   This is a most valuable skill and something I learned in my years as a Hollywood screenwriter, where I was paid a fortune to re-write films that were never made.

Another tip:  Persistence pays.”
