ON WRITING

“It’s very easy to quit during the first ten years of writing. Nobody cares whether you write or not, and it’s very hard to write when nobody cares one way or the other. You can’t get fired if you don’t write, and most of the time you don’t get rewarded if you do. But don’t quit.” Andre Dubus

Check out Life on the Muskoka River for my Letter from a friend - all about the Australian beach culture...

My good Canadian blogger friend, Cathy Oliffe-Webster of Life on the Muskoka River is doing a great series: Letter From a Friend so we can learn more about our blogger friends - where they come from, what they value, where they write, that sort  of thing. If you'd like to read my letter to Cathy, go here. You might especially like it if you're snowed under at the moment!

Here's a taste:

Beautiful, laid-back Peregian Beach.

  2. Gorgeous. Wish I could visit. Maybe the next time I go back to the Philippines, I can stop in Australia!

  8. I just went over there. LOVED the letter. I'm printing it out for my files. I'm not snowed under at the moment. We're having a VERY mild winter, so far. That could change. Oh, Australia. The place I should have gone to when I was 21, but I got married instead.
