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.
