  • “You are not your resume. You are your work.”

    — Seth Godin, “Linchpin: Are You Indispensable?”

    • Hmmmm – not sure I’m my work either… interesting.

  • Aparajita

    It’s rather heartening when you can represent a real person you dislike as a character in your piece and then do all sorts of vindictive things to that fictitious person- the kind of things that you’d love to do to the real person, but can’t. It’s as good as burning an effigy- without the theatrics! 😀

    On another note, I really think Mark Twain is one of the wittiest writers ever and there are many of his quotes that are my favorites, so I’m sharing one for a future Saturday:
    “Everything has its limit – iron ore cannot be educated into gold.”
    (Mark Twain)
    That’s something we writers should remember once in a while, when we’re pushing ourselves too hard.

    • Anne

      Yeah, Sam Clemens is one of my favorites (showing off just a little bit.)

  • I love this quote! I haven’t killed someone yet, but I have taken characteristics of people I disliked immensely and channeled them into villains who go to jail.
