This morning I had a really good laugh. We all need more of these so I will share this one for all of us bloggers, writers, novelists, wannabees and pretenders.
I received an email from my oldest daughter :
“A twitter post of mine is going to be published! Like father like daughter!”:
Attached was a link to Barnes and Noble:
A new book by Larry Smith entitled “The Best Advice in Six Words”
“Larry Smith is back again with a poignant collection of universal wisdom, life lessons, and caution thrown to the wind that will put a smile on your face six words at a time. With contributions from celebrities like Molly Ringwald, “post-adolescent? Then stop blaming your parents;” Lemony Snicket, “never, ever refuse a breath mint;” and Gary Shteyngart, “hands where I can see ’em,” as well as everyday people who’ve learned a thing or two about a thing or two during their time on the planet, readers will pulled into the sometimes hilarious, often serious, ocassionally reflective experience of the book. Smith’s currated advice book is the straight-shooting, truth-telling, next door neighbor everybody wishes they had access to growing up. Now they do! Here’s six more life-changing words of advice for you: Read this; you won’t regret it.”
Apparently Larry Smith invited anyone out there to send in their best advice in six words.
So what did my daughter send in that made me laugh?
“Never provide published work for free!”
She’s a lawyer and married to a lawyer.
She got a free copy of the book.
