Quote wall: Note to self
On the bulletin board above my desk, I keep a handful of quotes that have taught me something, or that I hope to learn from.
Play to the top of your own intelligence. (No dumbing down.)
I can't attribute this one to Nina LaCour, exactly. It's a note that I jotted down while taking her Slow Novel Lab writing course. (Terrific course for writers at any level, for what it's worth.)
