Speaking on writing, I always check out Miss Snark's blog. She's an anonymous literary agent who gives lots of blunt advice. Therefore, I was delighted when I read a recent post on when to give up on writing:
Publication may be nice but it's not the only reward.
The very act of writing is its own reward. It teaches you (if you pay attention) how to see the world through different eyes; how to wield language skilfully; how to organize a persuasive presentation.
You recognize that writing is a creative art and brings you joy."
Now read the rest here.
I feel like another pointless poll.
What sweets do you remember from your childhood?
Do you read any actor's blogs?
And now I'm off to the rehearsal, I swear!
