Everyone knows the old Chinese-fortune-cookie/between-the-sheets trick.
Well, I've discovered something similar just for writers: Take one of those yearbook signing cliches from back in the day and insert "unpublished manuscript" and, voila! Instant writing advice. Sometimes funny, sometimes deep, often depressing.
The unpublished manuscript that doesn't kill you can only make you stronger.
If you love your unpublished manuscript, let it go. If it comes back to you, it's yours. If it doesn't, it never was.
May your beer, your women and your unpublished manuscript never be flat.
Don't ever change your unpublished manuscript.
Well, OK, some don't work as well as others....
