Quotable Sunday ~ Pre-Party Writing



Happy Sunday!  Guess what?  Tomorrow I'll be publishing my 100th posting!!  Be sure to come back because I'm having a ParTay with giveaways galore!  Lots of cool stuff, like Target Gift Cards, Too Faced beauty products, and more.... and no hoops to jump through in order to enter!

On the eve of my 100th post , I thought it would be fitting to showcase quotes about writing....

Be yourself. Above all, let who you are, what you are, what you believe, shine through every sentence you write, every piece you finish.  ~
John Jakes

Writing is an exploration. You start from nothing and learn as you go. ~E. L. Doctorow 

Writing is a socially acceptable form of schizophrenia. ~E.L. Doctorow

A synonym is a word you use when you can't spell the other one. ~Baltasar Gracián

I am returning this otherwise good typing paper to you because someone has printed gibberish all over it and put your name at the top. ~English Professor (Name Unknown), Ohio University


Be sure to visit Toni for more great quotes.... AND don't forget to come back for my party tomorrow and enter to win some fabulous prizes!!!

    The synonym quote is apt.

    (apt is easier to spell than felicitous)

    Happy 100th!
