Do you have a favorite quote about writing or something close? Post it in comments and I’ll probably use it.

  • That’s a good one, Anne! How about this?

    “I’m not a very good writer, but I’m an excellent rewriter.”
    — James Michener

    (Frankly, the quote is a bit ironic and probably truer than we know, since I’ve heard Michener used interns to write most of his books. :))
