It took me awhile to get around to reading what I re-tweeted the other day.
My guess is that most of you literary people already know of the Anna Quinn. She owns a bookstore in Washington state, and is a writer with a long pedigree of insight.
I just caught a phrase from her interview that was included in the tweet;
“The thing I need to tell myself often is to stand by my writing – to write what I want and to write it without apology. I used to apologize often.”
‘I bet that’s a good interview,’ I said to myself. ‘I should read that whole thing one day.’ Today I made time to read that – I’ve included a link to the interview here which, by all means, I recommend you read.
THEN, there is a link in her interview about the day she got word that she’d gotten a book contract and the sheer joy that follows it. Immediately chased by fear and doubt. I suggest you take a minute to read about that here https://wp.me/p4SZKy-6l.
It’s better than finding money in a pocket! Reading re-tweets, that is.
Have a great day!
