From: Even Cowgirls Get the Blues

"Go ahead and fail. But fail with wit, fail with grace, fail with style. A mediocre failure is as insufferable as a mediocre success. Embrace failure! Seek it out. Learn to love it. That may be the only way any of us will ever be free."

Tom Robbins
Even Cowgirls Get the Blues

P.S.: Thanks to real-life friend Trilby for suggesting this quote for a booknapping.


  1. So does that mean you are ready to query?

  2. Nat, we've never met and yet you know me so well.

  3. Try failing synchronistically from 999 miles away! Doesn't get much more graceful and stylish than that.

  4. Great blog I connected to you through another blog.

    I LOVE this quote it reminds me of similar business quotes

    Fear of failure most often gets in the way. CEO of Disney

  5. Thanks Tom,

  6. Oooh, I like it. I think I'll strive for most book rejections ever before finally selling another story! We'll how that goes.
