This started off as a reply to something else, and Chris (@mousewords) said I should share it, so I did! For anyone who doesn't know, Chris is the fantastic artist who is doing my cover art for my Desert Storm Diaries. Can't wait to show you guys! I'm so excited!
Anyway, on with my profound thought for the day, right? Not that its original, but here it is!
I've always liked the idea, from Football, etc. of Falling Forward...
You know you're going down, but by tipping over in a forward
direction, you get a couple extra yards :)
Put that toward a business or creative venture, even making a mistake
is worth while, you've got some experience and possibly exposure you
wouldn't have gotten if you stayed safe.
Me? I've learned a lot from doing some pretty dumb things :) But I
think I'm in pretty good company here ;)
