Well, folks, it’s time for another blog chain post.
The topic this week is…
Share a favorite poem, quote, joke, anecdote, or anything of the sort that deals with writing, writers, the publishing industry, or the other strange and unusual tidbits that belong to our little world.
Now, the folks most interested in talking about writing are those called to do it. Which makes it no surprise that there are many different quotable sources for this topic.
I’m going to focus then, on one author in particular: Maya Angelou. With my poetry background, I have a soft spot for Ms. Angelou. I was lucky enough to hear her speak once. It’s always fabulous to hear a person in love with the sound of words. 🙂
There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.
Then if one is lucky…
If one is lucky, a solitary fantasy can totally transform a million realities.
Then a fabulous mantra for the publishing process…
All great achievements require time.
I love to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels. Life’s a bitch. You’ve got to go out and kick ass.
So, blog chain ladies… you up for a little ass-kickin’?
