A Writer is Like . . .


"A writer is like a bag lady going through life with a sack and a pointed stick collecting stuff."
~ Tony Hillerman

I came across this quote recently and remembered this post. I originally posted it a couple of years ago, but I thought it would be fun to do again.
 
Okay everyone, on three...

Grab bags!
Ready sticks!
And...
Write!

What creative and playful simile can you come up with today?

This one always makes me smile: "The pen is mightier than the sword, and considerably easier to write with.

Good one. I feel like a computer, always getting input, processing, then finally getting a chance to print-out.
