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.

Ha!

Brilliant. I'm not sure I have the gumption to say that to someone's face, but... it's still brilliant.
