Friday Funnies

It's better to reach for the stars and land on the roof, 
than to reach for the roof and land in the garbage. 
~via my cousin, Jaime...not sure where she got it


I would never encourage anyone to be a writer. It's too hard.
~Eudora Welty



John Irving on writing and drinking:
Drunks ramble; so do books by drunks.



The first book I wrote was the best-selling book of the year, and the second book dropped dead. What can we learn from this? Absolutely nothing. But if you keep on submitting and never give up, the chances re that someday somebody will eventually buy your work. 
Unless they don't.

I love Friday Funnies. My favorite today is the quote about drunk writers! :-)

I'd add to the first one--or one second after hitting "send."
