Tweets Tuesdays (17)

Resurrecting some Tweets from the past week:

The expert in anything was once a beginner...

I'm exhilarated every time I get out of revision cave, but later I search for my 
awesomness & find that I *might* have kept the cave too dark o_0

If you are in difficulties with a book, try the element of surprise:
attack it at an hour when it isn't expecting it. ~ H.G. Wells

I'm as crazy as any other writerbut if you ask me,
sanity is overrated anyway :P

If you don't fight for what you want
at least have the decency to respect those who do.
~ Jose Marti


  1. That last one is spot-on. And so is the first one. The greatest began as the least.

  2. I like the comment about the element of surprise. Attack your manuscript when it's thinking you're totally baffled so it's sleeping! Just when your manuscript thinks it's won the battle, go back and revise it. You'll be the winner for sure.

  3. Ah! I am going to try H.G. Wells advice. Today the manuscript was definitively expecting me and it hid.

    1. I hate it when our manuscripts do that... o_0 lol

  4. Maybe HG has something there. I could try and get it off guard. A plan of attack has to be made! Writer’s Mark

  5. There's some excellent advice here! It's hard to choose a favorite. I"m not in favor of people saying they're an expert at anything. I think that's something other people should decide. When I taught horseback riding, countless people would say they were an expert. Generally, that signaled us to give them the most gentle horse because so many people thought they were experts if they lived next to a farm, or if they rode once a year!
