But it did have good moments. At one point, Falkor, the Luck Dragon, had an awesome line. It was so good I had to jump up and write it down:
Never give up and good luck will find you.
Isn't that great? Of course, I wouldn't mind having my very own luck dragon. Preferably one that looked a little more on the ball and didn't sound like the dog in Davy and Goliath. But even Falkor would do. I mean, you can't really complain about a dragon that brings you luck, right?
In some ways his line reminds me of one of my favorite quotes from Thomas Jefferson: "I'm a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work, the more I have of it." Put the two together and you've got one outstanding quote:
I'm a great believer in luck. Never give up, keep working hard, and more good luck will find you.
I like that! It's my mantra for this Monday. Because sometimes I look at my writing and think it's total crap and sometimes I want to throw in the towel and just not bother. But today I believe that even in the midst of crap I can find a gem. Today I believe that if I keep working hard and don't give up, good luck will find me. It will find us all.
What about you? Do you believe?
P.S. A few posts ago I thought I had hit 200. But when I took out drafts that had never been posted, I realized that today marks #194. Six more to go and then we'll have a party. Woo-hoo!!
