It's Make Your Father Happy Day

cj Sez: I remember a Christmas morning that my father made me happy when he swept up seven-year-old me in his arms and danced around the kitchen singing a carol in Swedish. As I remember him today, I like to think I made him happy, too.

I know. Now I’m supposed to post an interesting and informative blog for our Lyrical Pens followers, but I've been crashing on a deadline and have fried my brain. So, instead, I’ll pass along a repeat of some of the smiles and truisms that tend to show up on Facebook pages.

Of special interest to people who live with writers:

***
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.

Noun-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.

***
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.

***
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.

Hey, all you writers out there, want to do a guest blog? Send me a note, and we'll work something out.    cjpetterson@gmail.com . . . and put Guest Blog in the subject line.
 
You-all guys keep on keeping on, and I’ll try to do the same.
