|This is NOT a sloppy omelette|
If you have ever watched Saturday Kitchen you will know about the omelette challenge. Two chefs compete against each other to produce a cooked omelette in the quickest time. If you want to see a great example take a look at this You Tube clip. Two omelettes cooked in under twenty seconds. One cooked, one underdone and sloppy in the middle.
The truth is, the second chef would have also had a perfectly cooked omelette given a few more seconds and without the fear of being beaten by his rival. So with writing, we must look to get our technique right, even if it takes a bit longer (if only it were a few seconds.) On the days when you feel like your writing efforts are slap-dash and will always be wobbly when you dig into them, remember that these chefs took years to perfect their culinary skills in order to be able to produce the perfect omelette (along with a few other dishes.) It is easy to despair with writing and give up all too easily but like with any career - it takes time, energy and practice. Lots of practice. So keep at it - until your efforts are rewarded.
