Green Eggs and Ham, Did You Know

I will not eat them in a house,
I will not eat them with a mouse,
I will not eat them in a box,
I will not eat them with a fox,
I will not eat them here or there,
I will not eat them anywhere. 
--Dr. Seuss

Did you know:

In the 1920s, Theodore Seuss Geisel was caught with a half-pint of gin in his room at Dartmouth College. Since it was during Prohibition, he was told to resign as editor of the college humor magazine. But he didn't--he just stopped using his last name as a byline, signing his articles "Theodore Seuss" instead. Years later, he added "Dr." to his name "to sound more scientific." He didn't officially become a doctor until 1955, when Dartmouth gave him an honorary doctorate.

Writing Tip:

Remember to concentrate on punctuation. It is important to use a comma and period correctly. These two punctuation marks regulate your flow of thoughts. If not used properly, they can confuse your reader.

Writing Quote:

"... What are you going to write about? And the equally big answer: Anything you damn well want. Anything at all . . . as long as you tell the truth." -- Stephen King from his book, "On Writing."
