blog block

There are books and books, and words and words, and helpful hints galore about writers' block and how to conquer it. I think I shall write a book about bloggers block. And I think I shall use quotes from famous people to fill the pages. I think I shall start with these:

“It takes a lot of time to be a genius, you have to sit around so much doing nothing, really doing nothing." GERTRUDE STEIN

“Broadly speaking, short words are best, and the old words, when short, are the best of all.” WINSTON CHURCHILL

“I was working on the proof of one of my poems all the morning and took out a comma . . . . In the afternoon--well, I put it back again." OSCAR WILDE

“I shall try to tell the truth, but the result will be fiction." KATHERINE ANNE PORTER

“The difference between the almost right word and the right word is really a large matter--'tis the difference between the lightning bug and the lightning." MARK TWAIN (Amen.)

Knowing all of the above makes me feel so much better for not writing . . . not on the blog nor on the stories I have in process. I was taking the time to be a genius. :>)

You-all guys keep on keeping on, and I'll try to do the same.
