I finally get it! Writers and salespeople are the same! They’re whiny, lazy, cowardly, constantly make excuses, always blame others, and are generally reprehensible! (Also, the drinking. All the drinking.)
They’re the same because writers and salespeople do the same thing: they dance with the fear. Day in and day out, the thing they do is tiptoe up to the edge and, when they can no longer put it off any longer, they jump. And once you jump, it’s easy! It was never hard in the first place! It’s only getting yourself to jump that’s difficult.
That’s what writers, and salespeople, specialize in. And you’d think doing it in both realms would make it easier, but no. It just make you twice as crazy.
Insert loony tunes music. Cut to a straight-jacket. Pan to the yawning abyss above which my sanity teeters. Fade to black. Evil laughter plays, then credits, and then back to the darkness, forever.As always, thank you for using my Amazon Affiliate link (info).
