More quotes about writing (because it's too hot to think)
My brain can't put together more than a few words and hope to make any sense.

It should be mandatory that if you live in the Silicon Valley, you have to have A/C. Alas, we don't.
Ugh. So I offer five more of my favorite writing quotes. Tomorrow, sitting in my air conditioned cubicle at work I will look forward to stronger brain firings.
