LIVING BY EAR–3rd Time Charm

[image error]After I “finished” writing Living by Ear in 2012, I “self-published” it in 2013.


Little did I know that LBE was not complete. And “self-published” was far from an accurate term, because so many amazing people were involved in that endeavor. Without the members of my original writing group—who became the manuscript’s initial editors and cheerleaders—I never would’ve moved forward wit...

The Next Best Boo...: This topic has been closed to new comments. What Are You Reading - Part Deux 5476 3703 Jun 02, 2019 07:01AM  
Jim Morrison
“That's what real love amounts to - letting a person be what he really is. Most people love you for who you pretend to be. To keep their love, you keep pretending - performing. You get to love your pretence. It's true, we're locked in an image, an act - and the sad thing is, people get so used to their image, they grow attached to their masks. They love their chains. They forget all about who they really are. And if you try to remind them, they hate you for it, they feel like you're trying to steal their most precious possession.”
Jim Morrison
