Thomas Jefferson

On July 2nd, I'd like to think that Thomas Jefferson spent some time pouring over his draft of the Declaration of Independence a few hundred plus years ago and kept tweaking to get it right before the 4th.

I value deadlines. Then I'm forced to stop revising—otherwise, I'm not sure I'd ever write anything new.

I'm sure Thomas Jefferson struggled over the words to get them just right, knowing that hundreds of years later we'd be studying his words and wondering what exactly he meant. As writers, all we can do is to try to get our words right, and it's a never-ending struggle.
