Thought for the Day - A bitter lesson to learn

"What I had to face, the very bitter lesson that everyone who wants to write has got to learn, was that a thing may in itself be the finest piece of writing one has ever done, and yet have absolutely no place in the manuscript one hopes to publish."

~ Thomas Wolfe

This is precisely why you will not find the following phrase in my Doctor Who story Terrible Lizards:

It loomed before the trees, a black blot of corded muscle, primal fury and ravenous intent.
