Robert A. Heinlein with Ginny Heinlein in 1980...

Robert A. Heinlein with Ginny Heinlein in 1980 in Tahiti. Original description was: Robert A. Heinlein, with Ginny Heinlein and Douchka Peirce. My stepson took this picture in 1980 at our house in Tahiti with an OM-2 Olympus camera. The picture was digitally edited in 2005. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

The most important lesson in the writing trade is that any manuscript is improved if you cut away the fat.”   —   Robert Heinlein

(Yet another quote about conciseness! I wonder who Rebecca is trying to get this point across to.  Don’t kill me for ending that sentence with a preposition.  I’m writing this on my daughter’s I-pad thingy!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

ps.   I forgot, this is not set up for Zemanta, so no pics or related stories.  I can’t figure out how to highlight the text for color either.  Sorry.      YUR
