Facebook-isms


cj Sez:  I know. I’m supposed to post an interesting and informative blog for our Lyrical Pens followers. Well, I procrastinated, so, instead, I’ll pass along some smiles and truisms that show up with regularity on my Facebook page.
***
I am a multitasking procrastinator.
I can put off several things at once. . . . and often do, as today. (sigh)
***
Today is Sunday.  Share this and within seven days, you’ll get another Sunday.
It really works!
One of my friends ignored this message, and he got a Monday within twenty-four hours.
Believe me, it works.
***
Subject-verb agreements
I write.
You write.
He writes.
She writes.
They write.
We all revise.
***
It’s funny how Red, White, and Blue represent freedom . . . until they’re flashing behind you.
***
A child who reads will be an adult who thinks.
***
I am a professional writer. I can tell lies with a straight face.
But I’m a piker when it comes to atoms.
You can’t trust them.
They make up everything.
***
Martin Rooney: “Your life will not be measured by the things you started but by the few you finished.”
***
Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try.
***
At two a.m.: I need to stop, I whispered to myself as I started another chapter. (cj Sez: That’s the book I hope to write one day.)
***
James Watkins: “To survive as a writer, you must develop a tough hide and a tender heart . . . and never, ever get the two switched.”
***
I am currently unsupervised. I know. It freaks me out, too . . . but the possibilities are endless!
***
Diablo Cody: “I don’t have a formal rewrite process. I just compulsively groom and re-groom scenes like a cat with OCD.”  (cj Sez: My method exactly.)
***
We are all precious in the sight of the Lord.
He may shake His head a lot, but we’re still precious.

Okay, that's all for now. You-all guys keep on keeping on, and I’ll try to do the same.
