I have always been a proponent of calling the plumber.
If my kitchen sink breaks, I don’t spend the weekend on YouTube trying to figure out how to fix it. I refuse to suffer through it all. And I don’t waste my precious time.
I pick up the damn phone, and I call the plumber.
In an hour, my kitchen sink is fixed and I am H.A.P.P.Y.
Totally worth the money spent.
There is a chance that you are here because you need a plumber.
Maybe you have spent a lot of time already trying to write your stuff ,and it’s sunk you into a dark, ugly hole.
Or maybe you already know and accept that writing isn’t your thing, and you’re ready to call the plumber.
I know you and I am awed by your talent – it’s obviously a talent I don’t have (or I’d be doing that instead!)
You are a brilliant singer or massage therapist or art director or fill in the blank (maybe you’re an actual plumber).
But you are not a writer.
(No judgment, just simple fact.)
You do your thing. And I’ll do mine.
We can’t all do it all.
Why would you waste your precious singing time trying to write?
I can’t for the life of me understand why you would.
Time is precious and time is money – and, in my experience, time is more valuable than the actual cash we would hand over to a professional to do what we can’t do easily or with grace.
