Daughter: Mummy, why, when there are so many books in the world, is it so hard to write one?
Mummy: *gasping* Well, darling, I don’t have much time to write because I have to look after all of you. Some writers are lucky enough to have 10 hours a day to write. Also, I want my book to be good, so I keep going over it to improve it. And the market is tough nowadays, and I can’t send out something half-written. It has to be as polished and good and well-written as possible.
Daughter: Hmm. Think I’ll play the piano now.
