Unfortunately, writers who have income need to calculate and pay taxes every year. Fortunately, we have one more day to get them in this year, because April 15, the traditional filing deadline for most U.S. taxpayers, falls on Sunday. Therefore, that not being a business day, the IRS gives us a one-day extension to file.
I'm probably still doing all those calculations, so I have nothing witty to post today, except these few gems from bestselling authors:
"I would advise anyone who aspires to a writing career that before developing his talent he would be wise to develop a thick hide." ~Harper Lee"What a writer has to do is write what hasn't been written before or beat dead men at what they have done." ~Ernest Hemingway"In truth, I never consider the audience for whom I'm writing. I just write what I want to write." ~J.K. Rowling"I don't care if a reader hates one of my stories, just as long as he finished the book." ~Roald Dahl
