Quips for a Happy Writing Day

by Valerie Ipson


Love being a writer, hate the paperwork.

I love my job. I get to sit around all day making stuff up.

I write, therefore I am.

I prefer to think of it as prepublished.

Don't be jealous of my sweet writing skills.

My weapon of choice...the mighty pen.

What does not kill me makes a great plot point in my next book.

I am, therefore I write.

The voices in my head are plotting against me.

Deadlines amuse me.

I'm in my own little world. (It's okay, they know me here.)

Writers get the last word.

Why do writers write? Because it isn't there.

Blank page, I shall thwart thee.

Haiku are simple
But they often don't make sense

Reality leaves a lot to the imagination.

Writing today...if I don't get these characters out of my head they threatened to trash the place.

And finally...

You're an awesome writer, now get back to work.

  1. Those were fun. Love cafepress, also love threadless.

  2. Thanks for the smiles, Valerie! I hope your day is full of them!

  3. Fabulous.
    I may have to hang some of these up at my desk.

  4. Thank you for the descriptions. Fun stuff.

  5. Those are fun. I need fun. Also had not heard of cafepress before. I'll have to check it out.

  6. Thanks, Valerie! I definitely needed the smiles! (And the LOL at the Haiku-Hippopotamus!)
