Authors vs Sunflowers
I was looking at my sunflower seedlings just now and it struck me that authors are a little like those seedlings, striving for the light, trying to grow bigger and stronger, so that they are the one that survives.
Of course, these seedlings aren’t in the wild, where they might have to fight for their existence. They will be cared for and nurtured in the hopes that they all survive. They will get everything they require in terms of nutrition and support. The same cannot, necessarily, be said of all authors, as they fight for attention.
Just a thought.
