If you are among the *few* people who haven't heard about Susan Boyle, please go watch this clip RIGHT NOW!
Even if you've seen it, maybe it would be good to watch again. I'd seen an interview clip and heard the recording she'd made ten years ago, but hadn't yet seen her performance on Britain's Got Talent. Every time I tell myself I'm too old or too plain for such-and-such, I am going to have a virtual cup of tea with Our Miss Boyle, because she is the most fantastic inspiration a gal could have. She's cute and funny and has a voice I could listen to forever!
Many thanks to @ImTheQ on Twitter for leading me to this blog post: http://www.murderati.com/blog/2009/4/19/how-do-you-know-when-to-quit.html
which led me to the video. This is an article about Never Giving Up on your dream (but not in a schmaltzy way). It's aimed at writers, but I think applicable to us all! Go check out the article, and Follow Q on Twitter, because she's a crack-up (if you don't mind potty language:)
