So I was talking to someone this Friday just past (not a writer) and she asked me how my work was going. I confessed that after a considerable dry spell, I had made some sudden and unexpected inroads on a particular project and had high hopes. I then promptly poured cold water on these hopes, as so many writers are wont to do by saying:

“… But I’m not sure my work’s good enough.”

The other person then smiled and said:

“I don’t think that’s for you to say… That’s for other people to judge, isn’t it?”

Indeed it is.

    I'm sure I've ripped that dialogue from somewhere, probably John Hughes.
