Good Enough #2      quill pen writing

Words a writer's tools must be.
Their combination an infinity.
How to know when good enough?
How to finish up your stuff?
Finished is good enough, you see.

William's Whimsical Words:

Most of what you write isn't worth keeping. The problem is that you are not the best judge of what is.
