The book by Sophy Burnham: FOR WRITER'S ONLY. (You can buy it used at Amazon for only a penny!)
It's a lovely book with advice for writers to get through each day and to know that they're not alone in their singular, lonely occupation to bring a story alive. And to know that what they do is important and worth it. No matter what the outcome or the struggle.
Here's a couple of quotes:
Gustave Flaubert said: "Writing is a lonely life, but the only life worth living."
Not so lonely anymore with all of you lovely, lovely LJers and Blogspot friends. I wrote for 15 years all by my lonesome without knowing another single writer - before the Internet boom (Um, I started as a toddler - ha!)
Samuel Beckett said: "Ever tried? Ever failed? No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail BETTER."
That has been my motto the past several years. And my non-stop failure is finally being rewarded.
My promised *news* IS coming . . . been waiting for the go-ahead! (I've never known it to take so long with anyone else! I've had butterflies for weeks!)
