  1. Oh come on, Snoopy always got as far as ‘It was a dark and stormy night’ … 😉

  2. 1) I love Steven Wright.

    2) In my bookstore years, I lost count of how many people told me they had written books or entire series of books in their heads, and had only to put the words down on paper, which they’d get around to sometime. “It’s all right here in my head,” was the common refrain. I suspect it stayed right there, too.

      Uh, oh… I’m reminded of those gross exploding heads scenes in Scanners!

  3. I totally rock the title page.

  4. ROFL! The first thing I do when I’m about to start a new book is to set up the formatting, including the page numbers (which tend to wander to the wrong side of the page).

    After that, I work to get the book out of my head and into digital storage. 🙂

  5. I can relate.

  6. Love Steven Wright. This is one of my faves:

    I installed a skylight in my apartment… the people who live above me are furious!

    • 😀 My favourite is: “I have a hobby. I have the world’s largest collection of sea shells. I keep it scattered on beaches all over the world. Maybe you’ve seen some of it.”

  7. Obviously this guy wasn’t writing an ebook.

  8. One of Steven’s that I still remember:

    “How can you tell when sour cream has gone bad?”
