Someone asked me to autograph copies of my books they had purchased for gifts.
This threw me into quite a tailspin. I will freely admit it.
She said to “sign it with some words of wisdom.”
That would be awesome if I had any words of wisdom to share.
Last night I sat pondering what to write and practiced signing my name so it looked somewhat legible instead of ink splattered across the page by a drunken chicken.
No pressure at all to come up with something profound, something touching, something magnificent to write in the books.
Finally, I just wrote the first thing that popped in my head, scribbled my name and stuffed the books into a box to be mailed before I could change my mind.
All you seasoned writers out there – any tips on what to write when you sign books? Any ideas on what is good or appropriate?
I appreciate whatever wisdom you can share!
