Ha! As an addition, how about: "Don't quit your day job."
Or: This will not make you rich. Do it anyway.
Love these! How about:You cannot fix what you do not write.Thou shalt not bore.Go and finish this draft. Now. Go.
Those are awesome, lol. Hmm, what to add...Personalized rejections will bring you happiness.You will query too early.Beware the exclamation point!Your verbs are weak, but your will is strong.
Oh my gosh these are wonderful, Sierra. Now if we could just get a hold of some magic dust to sprinkle over them... ;)I'm so tweeting this :)
Love this! Am off to tweet about it!
Ha! I love these. Thanks giving me a laugh! :)
I love fortune cookies. Here's a weird true story. I was thinking about tossing my first novel into a drawer and giving up the writer dream when a friend dragged me to a writer's meeting. Afterward she wanted to go to a Chinese restaurant. My fortune actually said: "You are a lover of words. You should write a book." I keep it in my wallet and read when my inner critic pops out.
GREAT additions, guys! I'll have to update the picture to include them. Thanks for all the comments and tweets! Tara, I like that fortune. I got the idea for these last week when I saw a fortune from a cookie that I was nomming in the car, which said, "Your situation will get better next month." And I thought, oh yeah? My situation is that I have last-round edits to do on my novel. My novel will SHINE next month and I'll get an agent, too? YES!!!
Ha! These amused me. I like the one about Confucius say: choosing Simon as a nemesis will inevitably lead to your destruction.
I love these. I wonder if you should submit them to Querypolitan? LOLHow about: "Dan Brown's new novel will be published with the same title and plot as your WIP."and to balance that: "Your manuscript will be optioned by a major film studio."
Oooh.. I love these! By the way, I have an award waiting for you over at my blog :)
