Happy Writing!


Today's post?

Well, it was in the works.

It was coming together. Sort of.

I looked over the text. It was so-so.

Then it hit me. Hey, this is my blog.

If I want to table the post until later, I can.

So I made the executive decision to save it for another time.

Instead, I'm sharing a quote that made me smile. Maybe it'll make you smile too.

"A metaphor is like a simile."

 Unknown Author

I found that little gem at the Quote Garden, where you'll find quotes for nearly every topic and occasion.

Please forgive me for not being terribly insightful today. :) We'll kick off the celebration for my Fourth Blogoversary next Monday. Throughout the month of March, there will be special guests, giveaways, and of course, chocolate. Hope you can stop by!

In the meantime, I may try writing with colored pencils. Care to join me? You never know, it might be inspiring.

Have a great week,

Karen

  1. Good for you, Karen! I love those kind of executive decisions.

    Hope you have a delightful Monday.

    Sorry about not writing with colored pencils, though. Felt tipped markers are my fave when I write in longhand. Susan

  2. Jessica,
    I know, it's great, isn't it? :)

    Susan,
    My Mom used to use that phrase - executive decision, and I thought it fit well. :) Markers are good too, will have to try them!

    Happy writing,
    Karen

  7. Tyrean,
    I hope you get to have some fun too! :) Thanks!

    Marja,
    Yes, lol, I guess you could look at it that way! :)

    Alex,
    Thanks! :) It's hard to believe four years has gone by!

    Diane,
    I know it, and it started out with wonderful intentions, too. Ah well, another time. :)

    Blessings,
    Karen

  8. I'm not a big fan of colored pencils, but I love colored pens! :)

  9. It always helps when I write with purple ink, so why not colored pencils?

    Four years! Hmm, that's how long we've known each other. :)

  10. The quote is simple, funny, and I think there is room to ponder it, too.

    Congratulations on your four years. The pencils are colorful, but they usually don't write dark enough for me.

  12. Lisa,
    Pens are good too! Love the gel pens. :)

    Susan,
    Yes, I guess you are right. We met when I first started blogging. It seems longer though, but in a good way! lol :)

    Nancy,
    Yes, I agree! And it'll make you smile. :)

    Maria,
    Thanks a bunch! :) The Quote Garden is a handy resource.

    Happy writing,
    Karen

  13. Love that quote! It makes me simile. Ahahahaa! I made myself laugh!

  14. I read that in college and never forgot that metaphors should make the reader smile. But not roar with laughter apparently. Especially in spy books. Who knew!

  15. Jen,
    You are too funny! I agree, it is a good quote. :)

    Joylene,
    Who knew indeed! I'd never heard this quote but it does help to think about it this way. :)

    Happy writing,
    Karen

  17. Well, good for you. Clapping here at your refusal to be ruled by a schedule or "should's" or whatever.

    Sometimes it's good to break out and break it up!

    Your colors remind me of Little Schrock and his love of coloring with Crayolas. That, and my love of him coloring with Crayolas. :D

    Waving and smiling,

    Rhonda

  18. Good quote and looking forward to helping you celebrate your bogversery (yeah, I spelled that one all wrong!)

  19. Nutschell,
    I'm glad it made you laugh! :) Hope you get a few minutes to give pencils or markers a try!

    Rhonda,
    Thank you - I appreciate your support! You are a peach, you know that, right? :)

    Terri,
    I had to laugh, that is some word to spell, isn't it? I'm not even sure I have it right! :)

    Happy writing,
    Karen

  20. I agree, Karen--I'm not a slave to my blog and I'm glad you aren't a slave to yours. We can maintain a regular blogging schedule without it becoming onerous, no?

    I haven't written with colored pencils in years, but thank you for the vibrant idea. ;-)

    Be well...

  21. Janette,
    Good to see you. :) I must admit, I have let the blog dictate more than it should sometimes - in light of getting to other writing. Working on achieving the right balance.
    Blessings,
    Karen
