Some VERY good advice.

Quote

Writers, will you listen? Will your change your ‘very good’s for ‘excellent’s? Will you surrender your ‘very hot’s for ‘scorching’s? Will you swap your ‘very confused’s for ‘bamboozled’s?

I think this quote speaks volumes to writers about how we can tweak our words just the tiniest bit to yield very big (woops…I mean enormous!) results.

Quote of the Day – Silverstein says spread the love!

“I will not play at tug o’ war.

I’d rather play at hug o’ war,
Where everyone hugs
Instead of tugs,
Where everyone giggles
And rolls on the rug,
Where everyone kisses,
And everyone grins,
And everyone cuddles,
And everyone wins.”

Shel Silverstein, Where the Sidewalk Ends

Quote of the Day – can you say ‘ahhbdgbdmerhbergurhbudgerbudbaaah’?

“I don’t know where people got the idea that characters in books are supposed to be likeable. Books are not in the business of creating merely likeable characters with whom you can have some simple identification. Books are in the business of creating great stories that make your brain go all like ahhbdgbdmerhbergurhbudgerbudbaaah.”

– John Green
