Ten Word Tuesday...Times 3...Plus 3 or 4 More :D



I would recommend the cultivation of extreme indifference to both praise and blame because praise will lead you to vanity, and blame will lead you to self-pity, and both are bad for writers.

You hit on something here that I've been pondering lately.

Some people are pre-disposed to believe either the positive or the negative, but really if you're going to let someone else into your head, don't you have to let them all in?

Believe in yourself, don't let someone else decide how much (or how little) you're worth.

Peacocks kind of freak me out. I don't know why. Maybe it's because their feathers look like eyes.
