Best piece of advice ever. :)

Lola Sharp said...

Holy frijole...two posts in two days!

Love the quote and picture you chose.

As a woman, I might reverse his quote...but that's why I have a couple of wonderful male CPs (*wink*) and I my husband is my first reader. (FIL is my last non-writer beta.)

I hope you are outlining and preparing. No cheating by starting the actual writing, though. (write a short or something until Nov. 1st)

Pam--yeah, I think it's pretty spot on.

Lola--I have a short I'm kicking around now, but that's it. I wouldn't dream of cheating. If I beat you, I want it to be fair and square! :D

Thanks ladies for stopping by.
