Diary of an author, waiting. part 13.
While he’s waiting for his book, The Fate of the Artist to find its’ way onto the market, the author receives those little cheer-me-ups from his wife, little quotations and such designed to remind him that he is on the right path and that all will turn out right.
Today it’s this:
Don’t give up too soon. Not even if well-meaning parents, relatives, friends and colleagues tell you to get ‘a real job.’ Your dreams are your real job.
— Joyce Spizer, author of Rejections of the Written Famous
Alas, it only reminds him of the time he was fired from a ‘real job’ for daydreaming.
