This Blog Chain's topic was chosen by Michelle:
Share a favorite poem, quote, joke, anecdote, or anything of the sort that deals with writing, writers, the publishing industry, or the other strange and unusual tidbits that belong to our little world.I'm the last one in this chain, so be sure to look at my fellow blog chainers to see lots of great writing tidbits!

I also keep this over my desk. It's a Cliffs' Notes version of Robert J. Sawyer's discussion of Heinlein's Rules for Writing. I can't recommend it highly enough (or, as my friends will probably attest, often enough).
