Quote of The Week

"Some people will like me and some won't. So I might as well be myself, and then at least I'll know that the people who like me, like me." -- Hugh Prather.

There's nothing like a little honesty when starting new relationships. Makes things easier in the long run as well.

Great quote.

I can get behind that quote. It's something some of us learn through personal experience.

Hello Virginia Lady,

Thanks for the visit on my blog.

NOW I know what NaNo is, having read some of your older posts. What a great idea.

I find external deadlines useful, and I will definitely be entering this competition next year. Seeing as how, for me, the entire purpose of blogging is to find my written voice.

Good luck on NaNo 2008; be lucid, and may you type with an honest voice.

It’s always a good idea for people to be themselves. There are so many phonies in media, politics, and business, it’s a treat when plain folk meet someone real. :)

Thanks for stopping by, Travis.

i agree, Charles, it took me a while to learn.

Chris, thanks for coming by. NaNo has been great. I've met a lot of great people and learned a ton about writing. I look forward to seeing you next year on NaNo!

Bernard, I agree totally. Living outside of DC makes it particularly difficult to find real people. Everyone is always trying to portray themselves as everyone else's next best friend or best contact anyway.
