"A writer is like a bag lady going through life with a sack and a pointed stick collecting stuff."
Yes, indeed. And sometimes you never know just what's in your sack until it gets jostled around...and then the darnest things find their way into your fiction.
That bag lady is amazing. I love that quote! :)
Can't think of a cool simile, but I like this quote!Thanks again for helping me with the PB (I linked you on my blog).Catherine Denton
Your posts are always so much fun!!
Oh, how I love this place. Yep, felt like a hunting news bag lady last week when I nosed up to a counter and peeked over a woman's shoulder to see what she was eating and reading.Hmmm. Simile? I'm kinda drained after meeting two deadlines.How about I'm as worn-out as old slippers. Yeah, lookin' at the ones on my feet. NO SUPPORT LEFT!
Lolol, great quote! I needed that laugh today! :)
Ah, you know what I always say... there is NOTHING that can't be used as a writing analogy! :)
I seriously think I have that baby carriage. I have a ton of old doll house stuff from the '70s. Hah.
A writer is like taffy . . . sometimes we have to be stretched for good writing.
This was awesome and aftre Tyrean's simile I'm feeling the pressure of not having anything good to offer. Loved the one's I've read though!
Ha! I love it!
Too funny, but oh so true! We collect from everything we experience.
Oooh she could be my twin!! I love being a bag lady! YaY! Take carex
Writers are like porcupines. Take away our quills and we don't know what to do.
LOLYou're so clever. Where do you come up with this stuff? You must be a brilliant writer yet to be discovered :)
LOVE that quote! And I love Hillerman. His journey to publication was such an inspiration.Thanks for sharing, Shannon!
ROFL! I love this quote! Love the doll, too. Perfect.
I lost my pointy stick...bummer.
HAHA that is so funny! The best thing ever? I sooo have a picture of me dressed up as a bad lady from high school!
Some days my pointy stick is sharper than others, especially when I'm revising. That's my favorite part!
Oh I love that Shannon! I'm a total bag lady. =D
I'm sure I'll have to come up with something since I'm doing NaNo. Everyday I must find several creative and playful similes.
Writing is like bleeding yourself dry. Or maybe that's just me... Oh, crap. ;-)
Hi Shannon - that picture is too much .. and I too can't think of an appropriate simile - to comment about .. but love the thought .. have a good weekend .. Hilary
