Thought for the Day Posted September 22, 2011 “The original definition of courage is to tell the story of who you are with your whole heart.” ― Brené Brown No Responses to “Thought for the Day” Diane September 22nd, 2011 wonderful kirby 🙂 Liesl Shurtliff September 23rd, 2011 That does take courage. Thanks for sharing. I also wanted to stop by and tell you that I sold my first book to Knopf last month, a middle-grade retelling of Rumpelstiltskin called RUMP. You were my first mentor and teacher in this business and I wanted to thank you for all your help and encouragement during my writer beginnings. I’m sure it was painful to be encouraging at times, but you always were. I feel very lucky that I got to work with you.
