I've decided to do a "Thoughtful Thursday" segment on my blog starting today.
So that means on a typical Monday and Wednesday, you'll see author and character interviews. On Friday you'll see "Friday Flicks," and on Tuesday will be some sort of writing idea, promotion for an upcoming book, or merely my thoughts on writing.
Consider yourself in the arena called writing and see if this quote doesn't apply to you. I would love to hear what you think:
It's not the critic that counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled or whether the doer of deeds could have done them better...The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust, and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and often comes up short again and again. Who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy cause. And who, if at best in the end, knows the triumph of higher treatment and high achievement, and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly so that his soul shall never be with those cold and timid ones, who know neither victory nor defeat.
