Duck, Duck, Duck....Otter!

This quote is inspiring me as I rewrite, revise, redo, rethink, and remodel my manuscript:

Neil Gaiman: "We (authors) don't train very easily because we're like otters. You know, a dolphin you can train. You can say, 'Do this, and you'll get a fish.' With an otter, if it does something cool and you give it a fish, next time it will try and do something cooler." (Full interview here.)*

Now, back to "doing something cooler!"

*Thanks to Kelly Fineman's LiveJournal for pointing me to the interview.
