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.
Thanks for the laugh, TJ. I needed one this afternoon.
Wish I'd thought of it, Vicky! Check out the link for the rest of the article (very good one, too).
Brilliant. I'm not sure I have the gumption to say that to someone's face, but... it's still brilliant.
How funny. Thanks for the laugh.
Love the quote. Too true!
Loved it. Very funny.
