“If it sounds like writing, I rewrite it. Or, if proper usage gets in the way, it may have to go. I can’t allow what we learned in English composition to disrupt the sound and rhythm of the narrative.”

—Elmore Leonard

"Perfection is an unattainable goal. It isn't going to be perfect. Just get words down on paper, and when you stumble to what you think is the end of the book, you will have hundreds of pages of words that came out of your head. It may not be perfect, but it looks like a book."

Laurell K. Hamilton

"In the water I am beautiful."

Kurt Vonnegut

"I just love deadlines! I especially enjoy the whooshing sound they make as they fly right by!"

Douglas Adams

"Women are like teabags. You never know how strong they are until you put them in hot water."

Eleanor Roosevelt

"There comes a time when you have to decide whether to sh*t or get off the pot."

Mom

Some of you may have noticed that "Her House Divided" is no longer posted here on my account. That's because I have taken the leap into self-publshing and am in the process of making it available through Amazon! Thank you all for your support and encouragement over the years.
