Fortune Cookie Friday: Yoda on Patience

Fortune Cookie Friday: Yoda on Patience

 Fridays always feel like Chinese food sort of days, and what's takeout without a fortune cookie? Thus, Fridays will bring you tips, tricks, advice, and some riddles that might apply to everything but will turn a light bulb on in your head (or maybe I just like talking like Yoda).

It's better to keep your mouth shut and give the impression that you're stupid than to open it and remove all doubt. - Rami Belson

Or, know what you are talking about before speaking or acting. It joins my refrain of "Google it! Google it! Google it!" The answers are out there, you have to know where to look. In this business, any questions pertaining to writing or querying or reading, can be answered online. Google it!

Happy writing!

I couldn't resist the irony! That's a quote stolen from Abraham Lincoln! The original is:

It's better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.

I bought a t-shirt from the National Museum of American History for my husband, who is a huge Lincoln fan, with that quote on it! :D
