Writing Quote of the Week

My prediction is that, if you sit a million monkeys at a million typewriters for a million years, you’ll just end up with a lot of monkey junk all over your rebuilt Smith-Coronas—that, and a big banana bill. And they won’t change the ribbons as often as they should—if, of course, at all. So—no Shakespeare, no Hemingway— not even Judy Blume. Now, I don’t have the math or the millions— OR the time—to prove this, but I’m going on record here and now anyway: no Shakespeare. And esp. not—if punctuation counts. So, you know—let me know how that works out. —W. Gregory Stewart
