criminal minds reid yes i'm a genius

yeah, so I just gave the most profound piece of writing advice I will ever give.

Over in a comments thread on novel_in_90.

"Nobody with a clean house ever wrote a book."

S'truth. Take it to the bank, baby.

Word up.
OH MY GOD THAT EXPLAINS EVERYTHING!!!
You do realize that this will give my husband an iron-clad excuse not to pick up after himself.

"I'm just helping you with the writing, babe."
I realize that you like him and all? But I would shoot your husband.

In about three days.
Yes, but /he's/ not the /writer/.

That's an important difference.
But many a house has been cleaned while someone was trying to write a book.
I have notepaper that says "Nobody ever said 'I owe it all to my mother's immaculate housekeeping.'"
Given that credo, I should have one written in no time!
Hee. Now it all makes sense! ::writes name in dust::
Oh, I have a corollary to this: If your house is clean, you're not spending enough time with your horses.
Or dogs. yeah.
Hey, wait a minute! I've written a book...

*looks around*

Oh, wait... never mind. ;)

you need to stick that on a fridge magnet and sell it. speaking of making a few bucks.

stop freaking me out bear i have 30 words to go...
Then I'm all set. My house will never hold back my writing career - except possibly when I trip over something and break a leg.
I cannot EVAR reveal my sources on this one; but I assure you that some of the most prolific writers in the Sci-Fi/F industry are indeed clutter collectors. Indeed!
