Happy April Fool’s Day

"To write something, you have to risk making a fool of yourself." - Anne Rice

April Fool’s Day is the perfect day for writers, since we frequently make fools of ourselves every time we pick up the pen. In fact, April 1st is a perfect day to remind myself not to take myself too seriously—especially my writing. On my desk is the following quote by Bertrand Russell, “One of the symptoms of an approaching nervous breakdown is the belief that one’s work is terribly important.” On this day of laughter and pranks, let’s make fools of ourselves. It’s a delightful way to avoid a nervous breakdown.
