Maureen McCabe contributed her list of good blogging habits to the ProBlogger project and I loved the last one she mentioned.

10. Try to remember what Columbus resident and writer / cartoonist James Thurber wrote: ?Don?t get it right, just get it written.?

This advice couldn’t have come at a better time. I am on page six of the 10 page chapter I have to write on the genetics of depression. I hope I can finish it by the end of the month!

And another quote related to writing:

“Who would have guessed that the toughest program to get into at Stanford is not the Medical School, not the Law School, not the Business school or the undergraduate program?”

– John Hennessy, on hearing that more than 1,400 writers applied for 10 Stegner Fellowships in the Creative Writing Program
