Author S. J. MacIver & What You Must Do — 4 Comments

  1. The book, MY YEAR WITH ELEANOR, by Noelle Handcock, was inspired by a quote from Eleanor: Do at least one thing every day that scares you.
    It’s a terrific book of Noelle’s quest to do just that.

    I wish S.J. the best of luck with her CINNAMON GIRL.

  2. Basically: all of them. I cannot imagine anything more difficult than having EVERYTHING you do, say or wear, picked over, criticized, analyzed, second-guessed. Whether Jackie Kennedy (she spoke French OMG!), Nancy Reagan (she bought new china for the White House OMG!), Michelle Obama (started a veg garden at the WH, OMG!)—the sniping & snarking never ends.

    The Pres’s wife, by definition, is the definition of strength!

  3. Lovely post, Sharon! And that Eleanor Roosevelt quote is also my favorite. I have it posted right here in my office, next to my computer, although the version I have says, “You must do the thing you think you cannot do.” Excellent advice for indie authors like us. 🙂 You never know what you might be able to achieve until you try. Blessings to you and best of luck with the book!

  4. Martha Washington, for sure.

    And deepest sorrow for Mary Todd Lincoln. One cannot suppose Lincoln was an easy spouse with whom to live, and her son Robert Todd Lincoln never seems to have grasped that his father’s supreme virtue was a love of humanity.
