Is faster always better?
Is faster always better? In this age of doing everything as fast as possible, it makes me value the slower things. I’ve had this conversation with my agent in the past. “When can you have it to us?” the publisher asks. The pressure is on to deliver it quickly, of course, but as Chip reminds me, “A good book is better than a fast book.” Yep, I agree. I can write a novel in three months, but it’s not going to be as well put together as the one I toil away on for four months or so. Do you find this to be true in your life? Are there things you take your time to finish, even in this rapid fire world?
