The pen is mightier than the sword, but even more mightier than the pen is the pencil.
The ability to edit, redraft and otherwise change what you have written is what can transform a blueprint into a bestseller. Be bold in your writings, but even bolder in your rewritings.
On the flip side – imagine you have the opportunity to write something beautiful for future generation; something immortal and wise, but the only condition is that you have to write it in quick drying cement. Think how much care you would take over your words.
The past is fixed – it does not have an undo button. Take care with your words – whether from the tongue, the pen or the tipperty-tap of dainty digits on a keyboard.
