"Fiction is the purest art. Commercial fiction is the butter, the darkest chocolate, and the finest malt. That's why we are so addicted to it."--Angie Brooksby-Arcangioli
...and apparently, the secret of success is stirring coffee with your spectacles. Who knew?
Saw this yesterday, and it's worth another read today. Thanks for the re-post. :)
Yeah, the glasses as coffee stirrer was sort of strange...
Thanks for linking this brilliant post. It's, well, brilliant. ;-)
Lessons to take away as a writer:1. Don't fear rejection.2. Fear of failure causes more physical reactions than actual failure.3. If you meet Robert the Publisher, graciously decline coffee.4. I now have a fear of old creamer and spectacles.
Okay. So a pat little 'thank you' doesn't quite suffice. I'll say it again. Dang!
aw shucks, thanks, Janet.
Oh wow. That was sweet. Thanks for the link. There's so much more to do in life than worry. . . It's such a buzz-kill, but so hard to NOT do. Great article.
"Easier said than done, of course. But I'm going to make a conscious effort going forward."Me too.
That was an awesome piece of writing as well as being good advice.
Most great accomplishments start with a little fear. It's what your confidence looked like as a small child.
I almost always agree with Moonrat, but where fear of failure is concerned, I feel compelled to quote the blurb from a bad horror movie: "Be afraid. Be very afraid."
moonie's bang on!
