Wisdom for Writers from Beaver Cleaver



When revision and editing process breaks down.
Beaver: “Sometimes things get so messed up, crying is the only thing you can do.”  

Romance writers take note:
Beaver: “Yeah, but there was too much kissin’ and not enough apes.”

On dealing with editors:
Beaver: “Do you like me a whole lot?”
Wally: “Look, don’t get sloppy on me. I might just slug you one.”

On complete transparency:
Wally: “Beaver — you got crumbs in the butter again. Boy, if there’s one thing I can’t stand, it’s crumbs in the butter.”
Beaver: “Sorry Wally. That must have happened when it fell on the floor.”

  1. Thanks for these (most welcome) hilarious tips, Tim. The fact that I can hear Beaver & Wally’s voices in my head makes it even funnier! 🤣🤗🤣
