Quirkyworks - a writer's blog
Random thoughts from a freelance writer - copywriter, screenwriter, children's author

"In real life, it is the hare who wins."
"Every time. Look around you. And in any case it is my contention that Aesop was writing for the tortoise market. Hares have no time to read. They are too busy winning the game."
It's 6 a.m and I woke early in a panic because I have too much to do today. I had too much to do yesterday as well and it made me, well...out of kilter, to put it euphemistically.
So I thought I'd do my blog NOW.
There I was looking for a 'busy quote' and I came across the words of Anita Brookner. Not only is she a damn fine author, she also made me feel better today...
Perhaps being a tortoise, which I never seem to achieve for very long, isn't all it's cracked up to be?
It's now 10 a.m and already I'm chasing my tail.
The cotton-wool bobby one that tells me I'm a hare.
