“…at some point you need to stop looking out at others and start looking inward, at yourself, at your own accomplishments, at your own foibles, at your own successes and your own failures. It’s only when you begin to look inward that you can begin to have an effect on those out there, the ones with the greedy eyes and outstretched hands.” ― Scott F. Falkner

    Michael,

    I really like these notes you send. And each time I see your headline “New post on Michael Ray King” I’m reminded of that old college exercise of writing a story in 6 words, which Hemingway allegedly made famous with “For sale, Baby shoes, Never worn” . Your’s sorta works, too.

    Thanks. Kit

I also enjoy the notes on writing from authors who share a similar perspective to my own. These quotes motivate and inspire me. I simply work to pass it on…
