My Favorite Quote of All Time

Standard

“It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain an idea without adopting it” Aristotle.

This is one of the ideals I try to live by. I will listen to others’ ideas and opinions and consider them but I always stay true to myself. I believe in sharing our thoughts and giving everyone a chance to have their own say. I recognize that we may sometimes have to agree to disagree. That’s the best way to handle differing opinions. I might even like your idea and adopt it- but it’ll be my decision and I’ll give anyone the same courtesy. Never, never try to impose your own will on another person. (unless it’s your minor kid and you don’t want him or her to behave like a heathen!- LOL! and even then, let them be their own person).

Costa Rica

Standard

Used the research I did for a full length manuscript that my alter ego is writing for a fun little short story.  I decided to put the info to good use by writing something short to submit under my own name. I hope it will be accepted. I think it is a fun little story. Submitted it late this afternoon.  The guidelines were under 6000 words, romance, jungle theme.

I have 5200+ words, romance and it occurs partially in the jungle of Costa Rica.  AND I have the greatest, coolest name ever for the hero.  The name alone inspired me.  So, how could it miss?? 

Stay tuned for an update on the submission.  As soon as I know yea or nay, I’ll post.
