My sister is always dropping memorable apercus about what life is like when you write for TV and live in Los Angeles.
Some of my favorites:
“‘Yes’ comes right away; ‘no’ never comes.”
“People succeed in groups.”
“You don’t call, you PUT IN a call.”
But my favorite may be “Everything you’ve heard about L.A. is more true than you can possibly imagine.”
Well, via Trish’s Dishes and GalleyCat, this hilarious YouTube video about book promotion is more true than you can possibly imagine. I laughed out loud, then I set off immediately to order Dennis Cass’s book, whatever it was. Fortunately, Head Case: How I Almost Lost My Mind Trying to Understand My Brain looks like the kind of thing I love.
I’m going to start sending out a short monthly newsletter. If you’d like to sign up, click on the link in the upper-right-hand corner of my blog. Or just email me at grubin, then the “at” sign, then gretchenrubin dot com. No need to write anything more than “newsletter” in the subject line. I’ll add your name to the list.
