Statistics and Other Lies.

I know, I know. Where is Wednesday's Words. I think someone stole them because when I opened my computer to type them up they weren't in their usual place in my brain. So for today you get a lot of nonsense. Something I'm amazing at.

I'm working on my crusader's list of people to follow. I'm 93% sure I have 52% followed. I think. Math was never my strong suit. I figured if I take a couple groups a day divided by the amount of tequila consumption and add the blogs with pretty colors. Carry the one. Yep I'll be done by the second Tuesday of next week.

BTW, Rachael, if you're reading this---I hope I never see the word BLOVIATE again. heheh Seriously though I loved the first challenge.

Here's some interesting info you'll forget as soon as you leave here:

146903 new books published this year to date
222096 blog posts today as of 9:22 am.

So I didn't totally waste your time here are some quotes I ran across and wanted to share:

"It's a damn poor mind that can only think of one way to spell a word. "
Andrew Jackson
I think I'm going to use that one as my own personal motivation quote. hehe

"If you can't annoy somebody, there's little point in writing. "
Kingsley Amis

"The secret of good writing is to say an old thing in a new way or to say a new thing in an old way."
Richard Harding Davis

"When I was a little boy, they called me a liar, but now that I am grown up, they call me a writer."
Isaac Bashevis Singer


  1. It'd be pretty depressing to find out how many of those 146,000 books publishing sold out their first printing.

  2. oohh I don"t want to know. I'm sure it would make me sick.

  3. 146903? Now that is a scary statistic!

    Thank you for stoping by my blog today. I'll be posting a follow up to the comment question tomorrow.

  4. Haha, those are great quotes.
    And to quote Han Solo--"Never tell me the odds!"

  5. Wonderful quotes, I really enjoyed them!

  6. I love the last quote. Happy Wednesday!

  7. I loved ALL the quotes. Sheesh, and that is one heck of a lot of blog posts. There are a lot of writers in the world!!!

    Thanks for your opinions about the book cover, Lisa! I was hoping your were telling me you didn't like the font because I haven't been sure of it myself.

    The arrows pointing down mean something to ME, but who knows if they would mean anything to someone else haha!! :-)

    As for the crusaders, I'm going to have a lot making up to do later this weekend. I've only followed maybe 15% of all of them so far!! I'll save it for Sunday night when my hubby is watching poker haha
