by Laura E. Goodin, Clarion South 2007
There’s always someone who agrees with you.
There’s always someone who disagrees with you.
There’s always someone who writes better than you do.
You can always write better than you do now.
Learning hurts, but not as much as not learning.
Late nights are another dimension.
A Bollywood movie makes food taste better.
You can say a lot in two minutes.
A small room can contain universes.
Sometimes you need to shed some blood for the cause.
When you’re exhausted and discouraged, sing to strangers. Loudly.
And with that fab advice, it’s off into 2009 for all of us. I am sure the last line of Laura’s advice will be employed widely throughout Australia tonight, although not necessarily due to those reasons!
Have a great New Year’s Eve, whether you stay in, go out, party, watch tv, admire the fireworks, have dinner, read a great book or wake up the next morning wondering if you’ve been transported and dehydrated by aliens and whether those are your* clothes strewn all over the floor.
