The Unfair Truth About How Creative People Really Succeed

Unfair truth articleA couple of days ago, my online automated eNewspaper, the Morgen Bailey Daily, picked up on the following article by Jeff Goins. It makes interesting reading so I thought I’d share it with you. Click on the picture to read the article or click here.

I liked the image of Ernest Hemingway’s Paris and thought how it compares to us now communicating with other writers online. I wonder what he would have made of this technology.

Jeff is lucky to have access to so many writers, although I’m off to Suffolk tomorrow to spend the next four days with some writer friends, and to meet a bunch of new ones so as Jeff suggests, I shall be finding my own Paris.

I hope you enjoy the read.

    Thanks for sharing this link. There’s lots of food for thoought there. I think I need to be much braver about making contacts and must overcome my aversion to networking.

      You’re very welcome, Julia. There is always more we can do but a lot of it is time. I think Facebook and Twitter are a good start. I’m on over 20 networks but it takes a while just keeping up with the main two.
