Favorite quote of the day...
From Joni Rodgers, with whom I have the great fortune to share a critique group, comes this bon mot from Boxing the Octopus (on writing):
Whenever I hear that old "everyone has a book in them" axe, I can't help but point out: Everyone has a spleen in them, too, but it takes a particular skill set to get it out, and only in rare circumstances is it a good idea to display it on a shelf.
