Post A Quote Challenge (Day 1)

Hello Everyone,

I was nominated for the Post A Quote Challenge by Charles French. Please check out his blog, he is an amazing blogger, author and teacher. 

OK! Here are the rules: 

* Post one quotation a day for three days (they can be from other sources or one of your own).

* Nominate 3 other bloggers to participate per post.

* Thank the blogger who nominated you.

Quote Day 1: Theodore Roosevelt

Unknown

“It behooves every man to remember that the work of the critic is of altogether secondary importance, and that, in the end, progress is accomplished by the man who does the things”.

-Theodore Roosevelt

I wanted to dedicate this quote to my fellow author friends. This is a great reminder that the critics will always have something negative to say, that is their purpose as a critic. Always remember, that as an author, just as it is their job to be critical, it is your job to take the good with the bad and ultimately write whats in your heart.

Nominees (remember that you need to nominate three different people each of the three days you post a quote, so if I didn’t get you in this post, I will likely get you in one of the others. Also, anyone who is reading this and would like to participate, consider yourself nominated): 

Good Luck and Enjoy! Also, I’m sorry if I keep nominating you for things…feel free to yell at me!

      1. In my university workshops, we weren’t allowed to say a single word during our critiques. It was torture! It taught me not to “talk back,” but I still haven’t learned to prevent all the stings!

      2. I don’t think I would be able to do that. Defending your work is like defending your child. But in the end learning to listen to what is being said and not take it personally is a valuable resource and one I am working on.

      3. Exactly. My professor had us think of it this way — if you get a one star review on Amazon, you can’t really defend yourself. Sure, you could post a comment, but then you just feed the troll. And you can never defend yourselves in the minds of readers who never review or reach out to you. So, as she always said, “You better make sure your work speaks for itself!”

  1. By 2005, their number is estimated to reach more than 770 million. Websites have become
    big business and it seems that with the advent of mobile internet,
    more and more people want readily available information. Are you looking
    to give a paradigm shift to your business by incorporating some of the most innovative
    things to your web presence.
