Brilliant Quote of the Day

"Don't be afraid of your material or your past. Be afraid of wasting any more time obsessing about how you look and how people see you. Be afraid of not getting your writing done."- Anne Lamott in Bird by Bird

Did you read that? Go read it again.

What does that mean--be afraid of wasting time obsessing about how others see you? We can't **waste time** obsessing, but we can obsess...efficiently? She's not asking a writer NOT to obsess AT ALL is she? Agghhhhhhhhh!

Hmm, now if she said, Be afraid of wasting time reading message boards and reading blogs and checking your email, she'd have me down. How I look? Well I realized recently that I do not have the patience to style my hair, how is that for person-who-actually-may-need-to-spend-some-time-worrying-about-how-she-looks?

Enjoyed the blog - holiday gift package. A new site has been launched with plenty of bargain holidays to choose from. Bookmark http://www.bargainplace.co.uk not just for bargain holidays but for flights and transport to and from airports plus travel insurance deals and holiday clothes.
