I love Teaser Tuesdays! I am a very irragular participant as I often think of posting them on Wednesdays 😀
Teaser Tuesdaysis a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB ofShould Be Reading.Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
•Grab your current read
•Open to a random page
•Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
•BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS!(make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
•Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
My Teaser Tuesday for today is from Seth Godin’s the Icarus Deception, a must read for creative folks),
I read this on my kindle, and there are no page numbers. The quote can be found at loc 334:
Art is threatening because it always involves moving away from the comfort zone into the unknown. The unknown is the black void, the place where failure can happen (and so can success). Our instinct, then, particularly if we’re successful at one thing, is to avoid the unknown.
