1,000,000 Words of Crap

I was sitting in an auditorium recently, listening to a panel of veterans in the field of writing share their thoughts on the publishing industry. When asked a question about the recent surge in indie publishing, one author expounded on his views on “the problem with self-published authors”. Paraphrasing a fellow author, he advised that, “you have to write a million words of crap before you write anything good.” This is true, he explained, because new writers often write crap that they THINK is good, mostly because they don’t yet know any better and/or they keep believing the biased opinions of their mothers. Piggy backing off this pronouncement, another veteran in the audience, chimed in.
