The Novelist

By Ran Walker

One day he will get an idea for a book. He will write it, and it will come out like drivel. Then he will write it again, and it will get only slightly better. He will abandon this idea. Later, he will read a book and remember his old idea. He will look at the second draft and realize it wasn’t completely irredeemable. He will write a new draft. It will get better, even though it will never look exactly like he originally envisioned it. He will learn to love this new book, and one day it will get published.

Ran Walker is the author of twenty-five books. He writes because there are millions of stories that need to be told.
