Know What I Mean?

“Writers know, though, that a structure that looks as solid as a granite statue can actually be as delicate as a silk tapestry. Pull on a thread and the whole thing can unravel.”-From “Screen Plays” by David S. Cohen

This applies to all writers, not just screenwriters. I know I feel this way sometimes when I get feedback–like the suggestions/edits are going to make the piece horrible, but I can’t argue with the boss (editor) so I need to obey because it’s either their way or nothing. Everybody thinks that they can write a story/article/post better than the actual person who wrote it, and the poor writer hardly has no say in the matter.

Sad.
