Writing Quote Friday

Today’s quotes come from Mark Twain…

Don’t say the old lady screamed. Bring her on and let her scream.
The difference between the right word and the almost right word is the difference between lightning and a lightning bug.

  1. Ramblings,

    I have no idea why it posted early!? It was scheduled to run tomorrow, but appeared today instead :(.

    Guess I’ll have to do another one tomorrow 🙂


  2. I like that. It reminds me of, “Don’t tell me it’s raining. Let me feel the rain on my face”… so many good examples of Show, Don’t Tell. Now, if I could just remember to *do* it when I’m writing! 🙂
