Paying writers by the word is equivalent to
Architects by the bolt
Chefs by the ounce of ingredient
Haircutters by the snip
Directors by the frame
Musicians by the note
Night skies by the stars you can see with the naked eye….
Mark Twain was right (you know the quote).
Writing less requires real art, talent, expertise and more time than most realize.
Enough w/this 6-¢/word business!
Writers: be rich. Now or never.
