Quote for the Day

"There are three rules for writing a novel. The trouble is nobody knows what they are."

--Somerset Maugham

"I really believed in Harry. I think you've got to. Even if you've written a lousy book. Because writing is just a lonely slog and you have to believe in what you're doing, otherwise you live a dreadful existence."

--J.K. Rowling

How's that for uplifting? :) But the slog is a little less lonely when you have a good writing group. Now, get back to work on that "lousy book" :)

Piffle to the lonely slog. I love the whole writing gig. Who else gets to play make believe and collect praise and sometimes money for the deal? It's not the writing part that's difficult, it's all the real life things that get in the way for most writers.
