10 Things The Books Never Told Me

Whether it’s books on writing, self-help, parenting or fiction, I’m reading something every day. But, in life, nothing beats hands on experience. Here’s what the books don’t tell you:

1. Washable crayons are NOT bathtub crayons.

2. Editors make homonym errors too! Write v. right.

3. Prince Charming farts. (Say it isn’t so!)

4. Some babies skip crawling and go directly to running.

5. Even bestselling authors get bad reviews.

6. Some of those bibs from the baby shower are for drool. Lots and lots (and lots) of drool.

7. Moms don’t really like burnt toast. (Who knew?)

8. Promoting your books does NOT mean selling your books.

9. The things that made you fall in love may one day be the things that most annoy you.

10. Happily ever after is a state of mind and takes work, every day. And it’s worth the effort.

What is your favorite little life lesson to add in?

  1. The ONLY person you can REALLY trust – is yourself.

  2. Potty training is way messier than just changing diapers! This nugget was a bit of a shock to me.

  3. When published authors tell you that writing is a business, they mean writing is an all-encompassing BUSINESS, involving all facets of being a business–such as sales, promotion, marketing, accounting, research and devlepment, customer service, etc.

    When it comes to writing and marriage, just because writing is your dream, it doesn’t automatically make it your spouse’s dream.

    Finally, regarding kids–They are unpredictable. Whatever you expect them to do in public, ninety percent of the time they will do the exact opposite. Control of a situation is an illusion.

    This was a fun topic! Thanks, Amber.

  4. Your children will ALWAYS surprise you – even when you think you know them inside out and can predict their every move – they will be unpredictable. For better or for worse. 🙂
