One of my favorite blogs, The Blood Red Pencil, had a post by Elspeth Antonelli on June 5th that really cracked me up – because it was so funny and so, so true – of me and every other writer I know. I bookmarked it and have read it often since then, whenever I find myself “trying” to write instead of writing. If you are a writer, I guarantee you will recognize yourself in here. I also guarantee that you will laugh. http://bloodredpencil.blogspot.com/2013/06/if-your-manuscript-could-talk.html?spref=fb
It’s good to laugh at yourself sometimes. I find it improves my humility, which is so much more attractive than arrogance.
