Here's one for all the non-writers who think writing comes EASIER for us.

“A writer is someone for whom writing is more difficult than it is for other people.”
― Thomas Mann, Essays of Three Decades

And I also like this one from the author of "Game of Thrones."

“Some writers enjoy writing, I am told. Not me. I enjoy having written.”
― George R.R. Martin

Hi - what a delightful way to meet you. I have the "Let's eat grandma" t-shirt, which my granddaughter, who is 10, thinks a riot.

If you get a chance, please introduce yourself so we can get to know you.

And welcome!!

It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all, in which case you have failed by default.

Writers are almost always readers. I thought it might be fun to post a quote from a favorite author as a simple way to post messages. So here is one from Billy Collins. The poem is called Forgetfulness:

The name of the author is the first to go
followed obediently by the title, the plot,
the heartbreaking conclusion, the entire novel
which suddenly becomes one you have never read,
never even heard of," - Billy Collins
