Know your friends.

The man who backbites an absent friend, nay, who does not stand up for him when another blames him, the man who angles for bursts of laughter and for the repute of a wit, who can invent what he never saw, who cannot keep a secret – that man is black at heart: mark and avoid him. Cicero

Love this quote and how true it is. We all have friends and yet how sure are we who are our true friends. How sure are we that we have friends that will hold firm when shit hits the fan?

Most writers will concur with me that they have few friends in their lives. Often times, writers keep a select few, these are the privileged few whom read the first manuscripts or drafts or comment on the latest plots and twists.

Keep friends, real friends and cast out all the pretenders because at times we mirror the friends we keep.
