This week was all about editing, so of course that’s what this week’s inspirational quote deals with. These words by Stephanie Roberts really spoke to me.

Not that the story need be long,
but it will take a long while to make it short.
Ciao, amici! Today’s a mish-mash of sorts. You’ll see my featured image is of Dr. Seuss. Tomorrow is National Dr. Seuss Day. I’m a huge fan of his and always mark the occasion. Today I’ve chosen one of my favorite quotes from him. Actually, I usually only quote the middle, but this time I’ve includedContinue reading “Author Inspiration and This Week’s Writing Links”
