Brilliant line from Hugh MacLeod

That.s the thing about some big publishers. They want 110% from you, but they don.t to
do likewise in return. To them, the artist is just one more noodle in a big bowl of pasta.

Their business model is to basically throw the pasta against the wall, and see which one
sticks. The ones that fall to the floor are just forgotten.

If creative, if you can think independently, if you can articulate passion, if you can
override the fear of being wrong, then your company needs you now more than it ever did.
And now your company can no longer a.ord to pretend that isn.t the case.
