“Be careful what you wish for because you just may get it.” Punch lines revolve around this theme. Start with a Genie and end with a laugh.
I received a less than stellar review yesterday. I’m not arguing with the review. It was a fair expression of opinion which is what reviewing is all about. It wasn’t even all bad. It just wasn’t as glowing as I would have wished.
Which brings me brings me back to the above quote. It’s a depressing little platitude, isn’t it? Should we stop wishing, hoping, trying? Well, wouldn’t that be boring.
If I hadn’t asked for a review, I wouldn’t be wallowing in disappointment now. I also wouldn’t know what to fix in my next book. So, I’m going to drown my sorrows in something fattening and hopefully, write something better tomorrow 🙂
