Quotes and Cookies: The best you can

Hello from Comic Con! I can't wait to give you guys an update! But for now, an awesome quote.


For a long time now I have tried simply to write the best I can. Sometimes I have good luck and write better than I can.

~Ernest Hemingway


I LOVE when this happens. That feeling when you read back through your stuff and think, "Wow! This rocks!" The way I see it, it's a percentages thing. Like for every X number of words you write, you get the good luck zing, and you write better than you can. The more you write (or rewrite)(or edit), the greater your chances of getting that zing, no?

Here. Have a cookie with zing. Maybe eating this will up our chances for the zing. What? It couldn't hurt, right?
