or, How a Throwaway Song Became a Classic Hit – and What It Means for Writers | Mick Jagger and Keith Richards didn't like "Satisfaction" though they tried to make it better. And they tried. And they tried. What can writers learn from this?
The writer is seldom the best judge of their work. They’re (we’re) too close to it. We can never hear it (or read it) for first time like our audience can. So definitely let someone else have a listen (or a read). Nice work again, Graham.
Writers rarely know what their best stuff is until other people see it. We're lucky Mick and Keith got outvoted by the other guys.
Finishing things. So important. Even if something doesn’t catch or convey what I meant it to, it might still convey something worthwhile--or possibly better. Thanks for the reminder.
