Writing is like getting married. One should never commit oneself until one is amazed at one’s luck.

Quote of the Day: Margaret Atwood

Writing is not a job description.  A great deal of it is luck.  Don’t do it if you are not a gambler because a lot of people devote many years of their life to it.  I think people become writers because they are compulsive wordsmiths.
