Grapemo 2011 DAY # 16

We are just past the halfway point, and when I was looking for inspiration, I found this:

“Because a thing seems difficult for you, do not think it impossible for anyone to accomplish.”
Marcus Aurelius

 
But the next one I read completely cracked me up:

"This is not a novel to be tossed aside lightly. It should be thrown with great force.”
Dorothy Parker


Yep. You're ready to throw it, aren't you?

Go ahead.
 
Do it.

I know you want to...

Feel better?

;)

From SF writer Eileen Gunn, "The Secret of Writing" in Stable Strategies and Others. Tachyon, 2004:

"October, 1987. Armadillocon, then the hippest science fiction convention on the face of the earth. I ran into Bill Gibson.

"'We have to talk,' he said. 'I've discovered the secret of writing.'.

"'Okay,' I said. 'What's the secret of writing?'

"A beat, for emphasis. Then: 'You must learn to overcome your very natural and appropriate revulsion for your own work.'

"It was the most useful writing advice anyone has ever given me."

Now if you really want to throw something--throw me some TEASERS for tomorrow!
