Quick Quirky Fact

  • Agatha Christie was still speaking to her imaginary friends well into her seventies.

So, don’t worry about those friends inhabiting your head. You’ve not gone cuckoo yet 😉

  • F. Scott Fitzgerald once danced on the lawn of publishers Doubleday to attract Joseph Conrad; the caretaker noticed him and had him removed.

I am just planting some ideas here 🙂

It’s always lovely to start the week and each day as much as we can with a smile and positive outlook. I find Leannenz Monday memes interesting.

Just For You…

Quick motivational fact:

  • Walt Disney was fired from the Kansas City Star in 1919 because, his editor said, that he ‘lacked imagination and had no good ideas.’

Well, he obviously proved the editor wrong!

  • J.K. Rowling, the author of the Harry Potter novels was a waitress and on public assistance, when she wrote the first part of what would become one of the best selling series in history. The book was rejected by a dozen publishers. The only reason it got published at all was because the CEO’s eight year old daughter begged him to publish it.

That speaks for itself. So, rise and glow. Don’t let one or even several measly rejections keep you down. Your dream is as big as you want it to be.
