Topics Mentioning This Author

“If there's a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it.”
Toni Morrison

“The best time for planning a book is while you're doing the dishes. ”
Agatha Christie

“If you show someone something you've written, you give them a sharpened stake, lie down in your coffin, and say, ‘When you’re ready’.”
David Mitchell, Black Swan Green

“You start into it, inflamed by an idea, full of hope, full indeed of confidence. If you are properly modest, you will never write it at all, so there has to be one delicious moment when you have thought of something, know just how you are going to write it, rush for a pencil, and start buoyed up with exaltation. You then get into difficulties, don’t see your way out, and finally manage to accomplish more or less what you first meant to accomplish, though losing confidence all the time. Having finished it, you know it is absolutely rotten. A couple of months later, you wonder if it may not be all right after all.”
Agatha Christie

Stan Law A belated thanks for choosing me to be among your friends, Sara. It may interest you that my book Marvin Clark—In Search of Freedom in now a matching FREE download on Amazon Kindle. If humor you like, humor you'll get. Enjoy it while you can. (A little review on Amazon wouldn't hurt either!)
