Quotable

Here are two interesting quotations from the book I'm reading (Fairyland, by Alysia Abbott):

1. "'What kind of writer are you if no one's heard of you, and you make no money?'"

(My answer to that would be: the usual kind.)

2. "'Be brave. If you're not, pretend to be. Nobody knows the difference.'"

(I've done an internet search to see if I can find the original source of this one. A few sites attribute it to H. Jackson Brown, Jr.)

And sometimes, when you're pretending to be brave, you can even up fooling yourself into actual bravery - lol!
Learn by doing. ;-)
My reply to number 1: the persevering kind.
And as for number 2: I am brave. Most of the time. Just like my writing, I'm a work in progress. Aren't we all?

Yes. It gives us all something to do!
