Eli Manning and Writing

Winning Song of the Day: "Champion" by B.O.B

If you didn't know, Pam is a HUGE Giants fan, which makes me one by default :) My 49ers almost made it to the Superbowl, but were foiled by the mighty Giants...but I digress.

Anyway, all we wanted to point out in today's post is how Eli Manning and the 4th quarter (and of course we can't forget Mario Manningham) reminded us a lot of writing. Not that Manning and the Giants didn't try during the 1st-3rd quarters, but the 4th quarter was what it all came down to. And that's what we're dealing with as writers. The first few drafts that we write are not perfect, and will not get us book deals, but we're still putting forth an effort. However, when we know it's crunch time and we have to put our forth our best effort, that's usually when the final draft (or at least the almost final draft) emerges. So, here's to Eli and the Giants for giving us yet another metaphor for writing! GO GIANTS!!!!!
