Writer’s Quote Wednesday – Christmas Quotes, Mark Twain

Be inspired by Mark Twain quotes and a letter he wrote to his 3 yr old daughter as Santa!

I love the humor and wit of Mark Twain.  He’s my perfect southern match in many ways.  Did you know that this past Monday was Mark Twain’s birthday?  There was a fun movement of Mark Twain quotes spreading throughout social media.  It’s hard to choose only one quote from this brilliant wordsmith of reality.  However, when faced with Christmas quotes by our favorite author for #WQW, I immediately looked up Mark Twain, but nary a quote on this topic.  Instead what I found, was a precious letter he wrote to his 3-year-old daughter as Santa.

In addition, let’s enjoy a couple of quotes by Twain to inspire our writing this week.


…because adverbs make everyone cuss in this industry anyway so…damn.


…keep at it!
