Kurt Vonnegut
Stumbled upon Kurt yesterday and am seriously intrigued. This 4:36 video led to me starting to watch the one above.

Kurt Vonnegut
Slaughterhouse Five?

 

Writing and speaking are similar. In both cases, it’s nice to have an interested audience.

Having an interested audience buy a book or a ticket is one thing. Having them definitely recommend and definitely repurchase is entirely another.

Of course i’ve heard of Kurt Vonnegut. Have i ever read anything he’s written?

No.

That’s about to change.

For Brevity, Does This Top Hemingway’s Six-Word Story?

If you're going to drive a car, why not add some style to it? (ps. owner unknown)

Dear Son, I’m upping the ante on Hemingway’s shortest “Baby Shoes” story with: He lived, before he died.

For Sale. Baby Shoes. Never Worn.

if these poles could talk...

There is a claim Hemingway wrote a six-word story to win a bet amongst fellow writers. I say who cares the origin, the story is brilliant.

What Would You Do?

If you knew you could not fail, what would you do differently?  Know what I’ve learned in 50 years? All these quotes, cliches, sayings, parables, etc. – they only work if you do.

“No rules for success will work if you don’t”.

“Everything takes longer than we think it will, or longer than we want it to”.

“If your goal isn’t impossible, you’re not reaching high enough”.

Quote me.  Love me.  Hate me.  It doesn’t matter.  What matters is what you do.  Got it?

For anyone thinking it’s more sophisticated than this, it ain’t.  Carpe diem!
