FRIDAY'S WORDS OF WIZ


“Believe in yourself and in your own voice,
because there will be times in this business
when you will be the only one who does.
Take heart from the knowledge that an author
with a strong voice will often have trouble at
that start of his or her career because strong,
distinctive voices sometimes make editors nervous.
But in the end, on the strong survive.”

Jayne Ann Krentz – author

Always, Em-Musing
...and the submissions just keep on going

Only one who believes - so true!

Talli Roland said...

Yes, very true. Great quote!

Yeah, I'm getting that message loud and clear.

Anne Gallagher said...

Well if you don't believe in you, who else will?

And Hey, I meant to tell you, break a leg with your new venture. Well, you know what I mean. I think what you're doing is exceedingly exciting.

EVERYBODY in the Caribbean celebrates Carnival. Because of that it's not always on 'Fat Tuesday' or the week surrounding such. Our was at Three Kings Day -Epiphany - EVERYBODY in the Caribbean celebrates that also. (people in the States go - Three what Day?)The islands rotate Carnival - some people travel from island to island making them all or most of them. (Kind of like 'Dead Heads" - remember that?)

Carnival here is pretty WILD, but then,we make the rum, and it is always gone.
