I found a couple of quotes today on AeroGramme Writer's Studio that really sort of hit home.

"Let the writer take up surgery or bricklaying if he is interested in technique. There is no mechanical way to get the writing done, no shortcut. The young writer would be a fool to follow a theory. Teach yourself by your own mistakes; people learn only by error." - William Faulkner

"Write. Start writing today. Start writing right now. Don't write it right, just write it - and then make it right later. Give yourself the mental freedom to enjoy the process, because the process of writing is a long one. Be wary of "writing rules" and advice. Do it your way." - Tara Moss

“Advice to young writers? Always the same advice: learn to trust our own judgment, learn inner independence, learn to trust that time will sort the good from the bad – including your own bad.” ― Doris Lessing

These both hit home for me because, as you've seen in some of my posts last year…

Happy New Year!

Hi Friends!


Okay, okay... I know it's late, but better late than never, right? At least it's still January!

Christmas was good. I got a game for PS3 called Last of Us, which is a post apocalyptic story about survival and all that. We have yet to find out what has caused some people to mutate into attacking, flesh eating monsters, but the game is awesome. Right up my alley. The graphics are beautiful, too.

I bought myself an iPad Air. I know! I'm excited, too! I spent the first few days getting it all set up with the apps I wanted and needed, as well as obsessing over which blue tooth keyboard to get, which cover/case to get, and ended up buying the same keyboard twice (on Amazon) and cancelling BOTH orders. I ended up with a New Trent keyboard that is also a case that sort of converts the iPad into a netbook. The case even latches. I also got a $15 buck smart cover case (in magenta) that's really sleek and slim, which I can use when I won't be usi…
