Notable Quotes

You must keep sending work out; you must never let a manuscript do nothing but eat its head off in a drawer. You send that work out again and again, while you're working on another one. If you have talent, you will receive some measure of success - but only if you persist.
--Isaac Asimov

Morbidly Funny

I've learned a new term today. One that I should have picked up on before asking the idiot's question. Redshirt* = disposable character using a name the author knows. How do I know this? From Tinker's Dam on the Baen WebBoard.

Does this mean that I can write my gf into my stories and get away with killing her off everytime? If so, I'm in trouble. You might see me in her next book with my brains splattered on the pavement. (Just joking, hun ;)

On a sidenote, I now have a new mission when I reread an old fav. Find the redshirts! Maybe I'll even put up a tagboard so everyone else can play.

Come out. Come out. Wherever you are!

*Redshirt is from the security guys that kept getting killed off in Star Trek.
