“Live in the present, since you cannot change the past or control the future.” — B. Lynn Goodwin
Marlene’s Musings: Good advice for anyone, especially writers. Just do your best to be the most authentic writer you can be. Your truth and your genuineness will come out in your writing. Your poignancy, your humor, your unique “you-ness” will bring a freshness and honesty to your writing.
Be your best self . . . who else can you be?
Except from “Celebrate Your Uniqueness,” by B. Lynn Goodwin
