    I love it! I got the same border and little peace signs. Where did you get the larger boarder and the poster?

    I love your room! But, I can't read your writers' quotes. I'd love to know what they are - I do the same board every year!

    Thanks

    Here are the quotes I used on my board:

    ”I think I did pretty well, considering I started out with nothing but a bunch of blank paper.” ~ Steve Martin

    "If you write one story, it may be bad; if you write a hundred, you have the odds in your favor."
    - Edgar Rice Burroughs


    "Every writer I know has trouble writing." ~Joseph Heller

    "Only in grammar can you be more than perfect." ~William Safire

    "There are three rules for writing. Unfortunately, no one can agree what they are."
    - Somerset Maugham

    "The hardest battle is to be nobody but yourself in a world that is doing its best, night and day, to make you everyone else."
    ~ e.e. cummings

    I think it was Ray Bradbury who said, "You only fail if you stop writing." I love that one!
    And Mark Twain, "Use the right word, not its second cousin."

    Love the writing quotes, too!

    I use, "Writing, to me, is simply thinking through my fingers."
    Isaac Asimov

    Thanks for the quotes, I may have to add these to the board. Mid-semester I'm thinking about having the students create their own quotes about writing and placing them on the board. We'll see if I get this done; I have a feeling it is going to be a busy year!
