Friday Funnies

Many people hear voices when no one is there. Some of them are called mad and are shut up in rooms where they stare at the walls all day. Others are called writers and they do pretty much the same thing.
— Meg Chittenden 



Writing is pretty crummy on the nerves. 
— Paul Theroux



There are few things, apparently, more helpful to a writer than having once been a weird little kid. 
— Katherine Paterson 



When he was nine, he protested. "Everybody else in my class stays up until nine or ten o'clock," he said. "How come I go to bed at 6:30?" And I said, "Because your mother writes." We made a deal. He could stay up, but he couldn't interrupt me unless he was bleeding to death or the house was on fire. I emerged at 9:30 or 10:00 every night, gave him a kiss, and tucked him in.

I particularly like the one about insane people and writers. It's so true!

Have a great weekend!

The last one sounds like me. If it weren't for my husband, I'd forget to put the kids to bed.

Loved the glass door one. Too cute. :D
