'My grandfather was a craftsman, and he gave me two precepts which as a writer I've not been able to get away from. One was always take as long as the job tells you to take, because the job will be there when you are not, and you don't want people to say, what fool did that? So I'm a very slow worker. The other precept was if the other chap can do the job, let him. In other words, do only what is uniquely yours.'

Alan Garner, speaking in 1989

Fetch me more such precepts! says aspiring author Owlet, Spookington Flyby.
