Talking of Pleasure, this moment I was writing with one hand, and with the other holding to my Mouth a Nectarine -- how good how fine. It went down all pulpy, slushy, oozy, all its delicious embonpoint melted down my throat like a large, beautified Strawberry.

Read--Classic novels, works you most admire; Joseph Heller, Hosseini, Hemingway, Palahniuk, Steinback, the greats. Spend a day or two just reading. Read as fast as you can. Gets the brain working faster.

Until last year I wrote in a cabin, but I got a dog and the dog didn’t like going to the cabin.
He likes it when I write in the garden.

I once had a rose named after me and I was very flattered.
But I was not pleased to read the description in the catalogue:

You'll never know your limits until you try to extend them and even then,
one has to break out of his/her comfort zone to appreciate that effort.

A competitor will find a way to win. Competitors take bad breaks and use them to drive themselves just that much harder. Quitters take bad breaks and use them as reasons to give up. It's all a matter of pride.

There are only two months left until the start of NaNoWriMo!! Is everyone getting excited?
