I saw Daughtry in concert Friday night. It was great.
He explained to the crowd that they wrote seventy songs for their current album. "Most were crap," he said. They recorded twenty songs. Twelve made it on to the album.
Interesting. I sat there and contemplated how that related to writing. We write seventy words, seventy pages, maybe seventy chapters. Most are crap. We keep the best twenty. Then it gets cut down to twelve.
Then we have a best seller and millions of people pay to see us in person. I wish.
