My Quotes

Quote Left As a fiction writer, I allow jerks to think they have the last word. Eventually, aspects of their vapid personalities are sprinkled into my work... my villains sound more true to life, thanks to them. I have deep gratitude to the petty, mean and ugly people I've met. They have allowed me to develop petty, mean and ugly antagonists. I get the last word in every story I write and have published. Success always speaks louder than angry babble. Quote Right

Quote Left Sentiment is NOT a synonym for poetry; though a short piece of writing may tug at the heart, poetry requires figurative language, ambiguity, wordplay or a unique perspective of the very familiar. Quote Right

Quote Left The difference between a poet and a published poet is just one revision. A single word can change an entire verse. Never discourage any poet who says, 'I want to do better.' Telling a poet to stay status quo is to tell them to stop growing. It is sabotage. Quote Right

Quote Left Careful, there. If you cheese off a fiction writer, she just may immortalize you. And then you'd be a jerk for all time. Quote Right
