    Fantastic quote! And what a super link to information about Daniel Pinkwater. I heard him on NPR a while ago reading “I Want My Hat Back” — great to learn more about him.

    Thanks, Erik! Happy New Year!

      My parents said they’ve hear him a bunch of times on NPR! I really like the quote especially for the New Year!
      Happy New Year to you!

    Happy New Year to you, Erik! Love the quote. As I was sitting here finishing my first journal entry of 2012, that’s basically what I set as my goals for this year!

    Happy New Year Eirk! Enjoy your quote. Perhaps you’ve heard this one from of my favorite authors:

    Exercise the writing muscle every day, even if it is only a letter, notes, a title list, a character sketch, a journal entry. Writers are like dancers, like athletes. Without that exercise, the muscles seize up.

    Thanks, Erik, for using one of the quotes I sent you, and especially for mentioning my blog. It’s nice to have encouragement now and again.
    I look forward to seeing how we do with writing our book(s) this year… 🙂 … I know you can do it!

    Have a wonderful, super duper, fantabulous year, Erik. 😉

      Happy New Year! 🙂 It’s a wonderful quote! I read and have fun everyday (not so much as writing 😦 but I’m going to try harder!)!

    That quote is perfect! That’s what we should all do.

    Happy New Year, Erik! Sorry I found your blog so late in 2011. But at least I’m on board for 2012.
