Words of Wisdom from Writers


I try to leave out the parts that people


skip.

  1. Hmm! I like that! But I read it wrong, the first time. I thought it said something to the effect of, "I try to write the parts that other authors miss." I wonder why I thought that? Oh, well... The mysteries of my jumbled brain are a little too deep for me... ;)

  2. LOL! Writing the parts that other authors miss wouldn't be a bad idea, actually! ;) One reason I love this quotation is that you have to read it through, turn it around, and mull it over before you get the full punch.

    Yours in Christ,

  3. Sounds like a good idea to me... after all, I constantly find myself "skipping" parts of books.
