I visited the Surgeons’ Hall Museum in Edinburgh on my last visit there, a fascinating – but quite gruesome – place. One of the exhibits detailed Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s training as a doctor at The Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh before he became celebrated as the creator of Sherlock Holmes. It included the following poem, which I found both inspirational and thoughtful.
ADVICE TO A YOUNG AUTHOR by Arthur Conan Doyle
Wait a bit!
Comes the best.
Let it fill.
None the worse!
All the same.
Do your best,
Hang the rest!
I loved this. Thanks for sharing.
It’s good advice, isn’t it. We just need to keep working away doing what we love.
A lovely note to end the week on. 🙂
Glad you liked it!
