Donna K. Fitch, Second Death

“I knew damn well she wasn't a seer. I'd checked her wallet after bumping into her accidentally in the lobby.”

Dr. Seuss

“There are two typos of people in this world: those who can edit, and those who can't.”
Jarod Kintz

“Self editing is the path to the dark side. Self editing leads to self delusion, self delusion leads to missed mistakes, missed mistakes lead to bad reviews. Bad reviews are the tools of the dark side.”
Eric T. Benoit

“When you write a book, you spend day after day scanning and identifying the trees. When you’re done, you have to step back and look at the forest.”
Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft
