When I go pick up coffee and a bacon egg & cheese croissant on the way to work, I stop at the same deli. Each day, my deli guy has a philosophical question taped to the cash register.
Question 2: “If you had the chance to know how long you had left to live, would you want to know?”
I said yes.
He said I was the first person to answer yes.
I told him it’d force me to get everything in order. With finite time and infinite imagination, and I’d only do the stuff I really wanted to do.
Timely, in light of the #MSWL (Manuscript Wish List) trend on twitter.
All you writers, be sure to check it out. Agents are posting what kind of manuscripts they’d really love to see. Time is a tool. Use it wisely.
