Now get to work!

Quote of the Day (designed to make all you aspiring writers out there, yours truly included, feel like shmucks)

Ninety-year-old screenwriter Millard Kaufman, whose first novel is being released this month:

"Years ago, I was working in Itaty, and Charlie Chaplin and his family came from Switzerland. We were at a beach north of Rome, and it was a very foggy day and the beach was lousy. At about three o'clock it cleared up, and Chaplin said, 'I'm going back to the hotel. Unless I write every day, I don't feel I deserve my dinner.' That made an impression on me." (a la The New Yorker)
