Diary of an author, waiting. Part 14

How much of human life is lost in waiting. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

The author draws a picture of himself twiddling his thumbs while waiting for his book, The Fate of the Artist, to come out. it occurs to him that until he tried to draw it, he had never really considered before what that actually means, to twiddle one's thumbs.

Diary of an author, waiting. part 13.

While he's waiting for his book, The Fate of the Artist to find its' way onto the market, the author receives those little cheer-me-ups from his wife, little quotations and such designed to remind him that he is on the right path and that all will turn out right.

Today it's this:

Don't give up too soon. Not even if well-meaning parents, relatives, friends and colleagues tell you to get 'a real job.' Your dreams are your real job. -- Joyce Spizer, author of Rejections of the Written Famous

Alas, it only reminds him of the time he was fired from a 'real job' for daydreaming.

Diary of an author, waiting. Part 12

Quotations. I'm not so much a collector of them as a user. When I published a monthly comic I'd always start the letters page with one, and when I had a website I'd put a new one at the top of the home page as often as i could. Inevitably I'd use them up quicker than I could come across new ones in my day to day reading so I'd bookmark those sites who make it their business to collect and store quotations. Since The Fate of the Artist is our obsession of the moment, and the subject of this author's interminable wait, I draw your attention to an excellent site at artquotes.net and borrow one from their archives:

The problem with the youth of today' is that one is no longer part of it.
::: Salvador Dali :::

Since my esteemed editor Mr Siegel is more likely to use my blog entries if I include a picture with my words, here's a quick scribble of Dali.

Diary of an author, waiting. Part 11

Among the flotsam and jetsam of today's egosurfing, the author comes across a short session filmed at the last San diego con. Or do we say 'taped' still? The author has no idea about the technical processes. In fact he can't figure out how to get a look at the thing. Do us a favor, check it out and if he look like a twerp, let us know so we can remove this link.
