Authors Wake Up in the Morning with Scruffy Hair
When I was growing up we played a card game called Authors. There were Shakespeare cards, Robert Louis Stevenson cards, Louisa May Alcott cards, and on and on—fun game! I looked at those authors’ pictures and thought, “Wow! They must have had it all together!” To me those authors were a cut above.
Well, Dickens was in the deck too, and later on in life I read his biography. What an eye-opener! He struggled with the same kind of stuff of life that you struggle with and that I struggle with as well. When he got up in the morning, he had scruffy hair! So did all those other authors, except for those without hair! Simply put, authors are everyday people.
