Damascas-ers Annoy Me

My ears are covered and I cannot hear you!
I have a slight addiction to reading how-to write books.  The need to feed on ego-driven lessons about what an author learned when they wrote their first three award novels is now getting to a dangerous level.  The more confident the writer is that they have all the answers, the sweeter the read.  It’s strange because I curse them with the flip of each page.  It’s almost like, why are you writing a how-to invest and make millions book when you should be following your own advice and investing to make millions.

Addiction aside, I do come across a few nice nuggets of wisdom that generally apply to life in general.  This one, happens to be my latest favorite and adopted mantra for the month of June (plan a mantra a month in advance was my mantra in May):

If you are not afraid of the voices inside you, you will not fear the critics outside you.  Natalie Goldberg – Writing Down the Bones: Freeing the Writer Within (Shambhala Library)

So feast on that you eD slugs, and get ready for one king-hell of a month of June where the internal editor goes on vacation to Damascas.
