“When C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien decided nobody was writing good children’s stories any more, they set out to write the best ones anywhere and they did. It wouldn’t have occurred to them to retreat to a default role as ‘Christian children’s book writers.’ They were both Christians who could write and so they wrote the best stuff they could and brought it to the open market.
“…Here’s the bottom line. You need to get really good at what you do. Then you need to get in the game in the big leagues. There is nothing wrong with minor league teams, except very few people see those games, and none of the players in the minor leagues would choose to stay there if they could get in the big leagues.”
