A Favorite Quote…
Wednesday, February 21st, 2018

Life happened because I turned the page… ~Alberto Manguel

I’m busy trying to wrangle cats. Not the cats’ fault. And yes, I mean plural felines. Or writers. You see, I’m trying to get the last edits from authors who were given too little time by me to return them. Life interfered with my schedule, therefore, it interfered with theirs, I’m sure. But ah well… It’ll all sort out in the wash. Or everything will turn out pink.

So, just because I’m  in a mood tonight, how about you tell me what you think that quote means, or better yet, what it means to you…

Enjoy the rest of your night!
Your overworked, overly-stressed author-friend

P.S. Remember that in one week, PIRATES releases! It’s just $0.99 and is filled with luscious pirate booty! 🙂

    I see it two ways:
    1) The characters live in a book because the reader turns the page.
    2) Life is like one long story and you have to turn the page to for life to go forward.

    Great quote!

    Delilah, Give yourself a break and take the evening or even tomorrow to regroup. It’ll all get done. 😉

    I think the quote means; one needs to be engaged in life. You can’t sit on the sidelines, you need to be an active participant in your own life. 😀

    Great quote! It means that to go forward you need to make that step / change.

    Sending de-stressing, healing hugs your way.

    The quote makes me think of the first erotic book I ever read. It was written by Anonymous. I remember the story line. It was the first book where the sex was explicit. It was the 1980’s. I wish I could have read more books like that back then. My sex life might have been more interesting then it was.

    Got to be willing to turn the page, to live, to take the step, to take action! Hugs, Delilah!
