April – National Poetry Month

Bumper stickers of the week:

There are no unwounded soldiers.

Show or tell?  Show, don’t tell.

Get it right, Write it right.

Cure writer’s block – Exercise, listen, think; Exercise, listen, think – Writer’s block cured.

Character is fate; Fates shape character.

Republicans like GLBA; Democrats like LGBT.

Addiction is too consuming; Destitution is too constricting; Dissolution is too confining; Might as well live.  (With a nod to Dorothy Parker).
