Day 3 Quote: Writer vs. Brain Surgeon

“The beautiful part of writing is that you don’t have to get it right the first time, unlike, say, a brain surgeon.”

—Robert Cormier—

Wrapping up this Three Quote Challenge with a little humor. This quote always makes me feel better when I find myself struggling with a first draft that makes me second guess every decision I’ve ever made thus far. Don’t doubt yourself, guys! And be grateful you’re not a brain surgeon.

Unless you are a brain surgeon, in which case be grateful you’re not a writer.

Unless you’re both. In which case, baymax 2.

Thank you Susan for nominating me for the Three Quotes Challenge.

jensen ackles
Yes, this Jensen Ackles gif is absolutely necessary.

Rules are simple enough:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Post one fresh quotation on three consecutive days.
  3. On each of the three days, nominate three folks who have not yet taken part to continue the challenge.

Usually, I don’t like events where you have to nominate other bloggers because it starts becoming very chain-email-esque, but I’m willing to make an exception in this case. One can never have too many quotes in their arsenal.

I nominate:

  1. mandibelle16
  2. phantasmagoria
  3. lisa kraft

Go forth, fellow bloggers and attack enlighten the blog-o-sphere with the best quotes in your arsenal!

For The Rest of the Challenge ~> Day 1: Can You Hack It? // Day 2: Darker. Stranger. Better.
