At dinner with an elderly friend, I asked, “What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?”
“Well,” she said, “my mother used to tell my brother,
Want a good life? Keep your mouth shut and your pants zipped.
and that’s probably the best advice I’ve ever heard from anyone.”
I’m working hard on a writing project along with Lynn Love (check out her blog; it’s super) and some other fabulous writers through NaNoWriMo’s April “Camp.” I’d like to open this blog space to YOU today.
We have a bunch of new readers here, and all of you (long-time readers and new) have such great experience.
Please share below one of the following:
- The best advice you’ve ever received.
- The biggest thing you’ve learned on your own.
- If you could have a do-over, what would happen?
And hey, if you want to share a link to your blog, please do.
P.S. Here’s the best advice I’ve heard in a while (look twice if you don’t see it right away):
***UPDATE: I had so much fun with this! Please keep adding links to your favorite posts, and I’ll keep reading. 🙂
I want you!
Actually, I want your writing.
Very excited about several hours set aside to do nothing but READ. (Whaaaaaaaaaaat?)
Yep, this weekend, the kids will have some time to themselves and I get a break in a silent, silent, silent room with nothing but The Writer’s Journey by Christopher Vogler and YOUR BLOGS.
Chocolate truffles for my brain. The kind my friend used to bring me from Belgium. Yum.
Here’s your chance to make my weekend AWESOME. In the comments below, please insert a link to your favorite recent (or not so recent) post. Preferably from your own blog, but you can post someone else’s, too.
Thanks for being a part of my weekend. My life, for that matter.
P.S. If you order the The Writer’s Journey (or anything else on Amazon), using http://smile.amazon.com/ allows you to choose a charity. Amazon will donate to your charity with every purchase. If you don’t have one in mind, Compassion International is pretty phenomenal. I’ve seen the work personally and they’re financially transparent.
