It’s a good way to give people you don’t know well a quick insight into who you are and what you might be like to work with. It’s the the third time I’ve been through this drill and the third time I’ve brought this item.
Not because I can’t be bothered to think of something new, but because I still find it inspiring.
Of course it’s a book. I’m a writer, aren’t I? Not to mention a prolific reader.
If you think this makes me a sorry romantic, turn off your computer and go read the book.
I’ll tell you what I told everyone who asked me why I brought that particular item.
It’s not just a love story. It’s about what happens when the world collapses: who survives and comes back out on top – and who doesn’t.
The people who survive: what do they have to do?
When you have no training and no education, you can still become a success if you have brains and gumption.
Maybe your world can’t deal with it. Maybe it’s not the right world for you.
Subvert. Challenge. Question.
Find your own path. Be who you are. Delve deep and really know what you want or you’ll never find the thing that makes you happy.
Kick ass. Be a bitch if you have to be.
Tell me that’s not inspirational.
Oh yeah, in case you didn’t figure out which book. It’s Gone With the Wind.
