Pure Randomness

  • Finished reading The Lost Symbol and if you haven't read it, you should.  It's simply amazing!  A real page turner...Any aspiring writer, like me, could only hope that their writing could be even a quarter as good as Dan Browns.
  • Maybe reading a great book is what I needed to break out of my funk and stop banging my head on my desk when I should be writing. (I'm really just kidding about that last part.)
  • Was almost done reading The Last Symbol, when I took a break to stretch....went back to some of my old writing.  
  • I had forgotten how much I used to write. 
  • Great trip down memory lane...not sure where some of it came from.  There were a few things that I was blown away by.
  • I need to think like this about writing:
    • There's nothing to writing.  All you do is sit down at a typewriter and open a vein. ~Walter Wellesley "Red" Smith
  •  Time to get back to writing!  Off to the Library tomorrow after work. :o)
  •  I heard this yesterday in church and who am I to call one of the NBA greats a liar?

    • "I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. Twenty-six times I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed."
      ~ Michael Jordan
