Quote of the day

"It's an adrenaline surge rushing through your body. You have this spark of an idea that keeps threatening to burst into flames and you have to get the words out on paper to match this emotion or picture in your head. After this comes the work of cleaning up the mess that you made." --Janet West

Oh. My. Gosh. She descibes the process completely, no?


  1. Haha, that's a good one! Thanks for sharing :)

  2. Janet definitely knew what she was talking about. I've seen so much discussion online lately about letting the first draft fly, and then going back to heed "the rules." Love it!


  3. Hi Buffy!! This is sooo true! I remember waking up one night with a flicker of an idea and being completely unable to sleep until I finally got up and got out my computer to put words on paper.

  4. Wow! That's got me motivated :-D
