Ideas are cheap

Main Points

  • Ideas are usually cheap (although some ideas are more awesome than others)
  • Don’t let that awesome idea or novel you’ve had for 10 years hang like a mill stone around your neck. Put it aside, do something new, and learn how to write.
  • A bad idea written well will almost always be superior to a good idea written poorly.
  • Writing will always have moments of pure drudgery as well as inspiration. At the end of the day, your readers won’t be able to distinguish between the two.
