Don’t Disappoint Your Mom

  1. A good rule of thumb: if you’d be ashamed to show it to your mother, father, grandparent, sibling, or significant other, it’s probably not the best idea to post it πŸ˜‰

  2. It’s taken me over 40 years to stop being paralyzed by what my mom will say
    when she reads my work…

    Thanks for setting me back ten years : )

  3. Reminds me of the Ogilvy quote that says something like “the customer is not an idiot, she is your wife..” The best writing tip I ever heard was a writing instructor that said to write as though we’re writing to someone we respect — you took the same advice and made it even more personal. : )

  4. Love this Pin, Brian – repinned it to my Pinteresting Facts & Fables Board with this caption: Fact: TellTale Souls never spam when writing their Mother Memoir!

  5. Succinct but quite true.
    I also use the rule, “If this would embarrass you with your mom, cousins, aunts, don’t put it on the internet.”
