“It is not the critic who counts; not the man (*or woman) who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man (*or woman) who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself (*or herself) in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he (*or she) fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
I wrote a post, Just Because Someone Wrote A Bad Review, for writers and authors to try and put bad reviews in perspective. I invite you to check it out….
Who am I?”
I am an independent, self-published teller of tales. I am an author of scarcely any renown. However, as a storyteller, I know who I am, and with that persona, I am both confident and comfortable.
I invite you to visit my website,
and/or Amazon Author Pages
if you are so inclined please purchase a copy and leave a review.
