February 29, 2008 | Quirky notions
I went shopping today at lunch. (Okay, so this is NOT the world’s most startling news but, please, stay with me. LOL)
While cruising through the mall, I happened to stroll past a display at that most splendid storehouse of delights, the meganormous bookstore. They were showing off books written by presidential candidates still in the running:
Wow, all the major parties’ remaining candidates were there, while the ones who’d dropped out just didn’t have multiple titles listed in the catalogue. Maybe writing books really does teach people how to communicate – or gives them the stamina to hang on and keep talking, even when everybody around them thinks they’re crazy. Or at least hopelessly delusional for attempting this project, in the first place.
Who’d have thought running for president and being an author had so much in common?
Go, Team Author, go!
