A writer’s word … 8

A word about Andy Rooney, (of ’60 Minutes’ TV fame) who recently past away at 92.

“A writer’s job is to tell the truth.” (Andy Rooney)

He said he had a knack for putting down on paper, what most people would have wanted to say. And, for the most part, he did. Not many of us can do that so well.

As a writer, I valued his advice; and tried to act on his suggestions.  I believe it made me a better writer. And, the truth of the matter is, I just loved the guy.

So long Andy … ‘thanks for the memories’!
