   And it's finished! It only has to be written
   // /// ////As ins pers ex-piring writer <has slashouts>
   Authors rarely welcome even the most constructive advice
   Because I'm the editor, that's why!
   Because I'm the writer, that's why!
   Conform, go crazy, or become a writer
   Don't destroy the world in the first chapter--you'll find you need it later
   Editors are people, too.  They're just out of practice.
   For every vision, there is an equal and opposite revision
   How many writers does it take to change a light bulb?  Never mind that--let me tell you about MY light bulb
   Humanity's strongest impulse is the desire to edit other people's copy ^H^H^H^H words^H^H^H^H^H writing
   I'm a writer, not a spellir
   Incorrigible Proofreader
   It is better to write for yourself and not have a public than to write for the public and not have a self
   No one ever built a statue to a critic
   Of course it's possible to write good fiction in a world you didn't invent--mainstream writers do it now and then
   Poets make better lays
   Real life is reasonable, but it makes a lousy novel
   Remember that writer's block is nothing more than a failure of nerve--but don't let that bother you
   There's a typo in this sentence, but it slides away when your eyes move toward it
   Truth is stranger than fiction because fiction has to make sense
   Why do people spend years writing a novel when they can buy one for a few dollars?
   Writing about music is like dancing about architecture
   Writing is easy.  All you do is stare at a blank sheet of paper until drops of blood form on your forehead
   Writing is like prostitution--first you do it for love, then for a few friends, and finally for money
   You don't need to have a cat to be a writer.  You can bat your own pencils around.
   I love being a writer. What I hate is the paperwork.
   If writing were easy, it wouldn't pay so much
   Editors: We read the slush pile so you don't have to   
   A professional writer is an amateur writer who didn't quit
   COED NAKED PROOFING: Expose yourself to literature
   If I had intended to work this hard while living in unpaid obscurity, I could have been a science fiction writer
   If it's such a wonderful idea, YOU write it!
   There is no prostitute for careful editing of your own work
   Because I'm the agent, that's why
   I prufreedz lolcats
   I proofread the world
   Metaphors be with you
   A page a day is a book a year
   I have this great idea-- all YOU have to do is write it!
   WhatEVER you do, don't kill off the cat/dog/hamster
   I'm living in fiction. They keep changing the genre
   Writing is a lot like prostitution: first you do it for love, then you do it for money, then you recruit other people
   STET, dammit!
   I tell lies for money
   If the Muse doesn't show up, start without her
   Never piss off a writer. Anyone else will only kill you; I can make you IMMORTAL.
   Only one thing is impossible for God: to find any sense in any copyright law on the planet. ---Mark Twain
   The great thing about writing is that you can set your own schedule-- any 18 hours of the day you like
   You write to see your words become the light in someone else's eyes
   You can't revise nothing
   Born to tweak, modify, adjust, fine tune, and dither while trying to find the right word

Stickers

   Always proofread. You might have something out.
