Klingon Writing Academy
Today is a good day to write.
Rest assured, writer, we will be published, whatever the cost.
Do not approach me unannounced, especially when I am writing.
There is no honor in writing without revising.
Sir, I must protest. My character is not a merry man.
A writer never breaks his promise.

I am beginning to see the appeal of this storytelling.
In writing, there is nothing more honorable than finishing.
You have fully written ten chapters. You may now publish.
Good story. Nice cover.
Words come later. It is the scent that first speaks of inspiration.
Less Facebook. More writing.
If you were any other author, I would edit you where you stand.
Procrastination should be illegal.
Writers do not pursue publishing. They conquer that which they desire.
At the first sign of betrayal I will kill him, but I promise to return the manuscript intact.
It is true. The muse has returned.
It is a manuscript, a warning. Beware, a successful author is about to arrive.
Push! Push, writer! Push!
My writing class was not like this. That process was very orderly.
You look for validation in the wrong place. The true test of a writer is not without, it is within.
He will succeed. He is Writer, a Storytelling Master.
I have much to teach you about revision!
Writing, I will not be complete without you.
Qapla'! You are a writer. You are capable of anything!
