C is for Clock, D is for Dare, and the That Book Place Authors Fair


"Don't watch the CLOCK; do what it does. Keep going." ~ Sam Levenson

I don't have anything to add to this quote, I just liked it when I read it. :D

When I was putting together this post for dare I couldn't resist sharing these lines from one of my favorite movies, A Christmas Story. My family and I can basically quote this entire movie and I love watching it every Christmas. 

But since my theme is supposed to be favorite quotes I'm going with a different one for dare, regardless of how much I love Ralphie.

“I believe the most important single thing, beyond discipline and creativity is daring to DARE” ~ Maya Angelou 



This quote inspired me when I first started on this writing journey that has come to mean so much to me. Lots of amazing things happened when I dared to dare that I could do it. 




I doubled up today because I will be at the Authors Fair in Madison, Indiana tomorrow and won't be able to blog. I'm really excited to be part of the event as close to 100 authors will be participating, including my book fest buddy Tara Tyler

Hope everyone has a great weekend and, to those who celebrate, a Happy Easter!

  5. Love those quotes! And I hate to admit it, but last Christmas was the first Christmas I'd seen A Christmas Story. I enjoyed the movie and can see why people watch it every year at Christmas.

    Have fun at the Authors Fair!

  13. Maya Angelou was so spot on in her writing.

    We also have Christmas Story pretty much memorized. Christmas is really there until we watch this movie.
