"People forget how fast you did a job, but they remember how well you did it." -Howard W. Newton
I have the above statement taped above my desk, and I couldn't agree with it more.
Many writers have a tendency to want to rush and finish their masterpiece now. The temptation to skip ahead to the parts you’re most looking forward to writing, or to leave out details and feeling in your writing to get to the good parts can be unbearable.
One of the most important things about writing is to come to terms with how true this statement really is. “People forget how fast you did a job, but they remember how well you did it.”
Wouldn’t you like to be remembered?
Resist temptation. Take all the time you need to make your writing shine bright enough to etch itself in your reader’s memory. You’ll be glad you did.
