"A kiss that speaks volumes is seldom a first edition."
"I believe more in the scissors than I do in the pencil."
"You write to communicate to the hearts and minds of others what's burning inside you. And we edit to let the fire show through the smoke."
And one that echoes my sentiments:
"Revision is one of the exquisite pleasures of writing."
Aren't revisions the best? They're what turns good into great. Okay into incredible. Fine into fabulous. Ahh. I LOOOOVE revising. Do you loooove it, too? Or are you in one of those relationships with it where you both just kind of annoy each other for a really long time before you find out that you've really loved each other all along? (Or is it one of those relationships where you're willing to bet your keyboard that love could never possibly be a word you'd use to describe your relationship with revising?)
Since we're in the month of love, and because Valentines Day is just around the corner, and because that day holds a special place in my heart,* have a Valentine cookie!
(*It is, after all, the anniversary of the day I was born. Now don't go thinking you should wish me a happy birthday when it rolls around! Valentine's Day is not my birthday. Just the anniversary of my birth.)
