I was thinking of getting a bumper sticker, “Writers Do It Quietly”.
Then I realized it should be “Actors Do It Out Loud and Writers Only Do It Quietly When They Are Writing”.
I decided to send this as a joke for an Asian friend of mine, Long Huyhn Droop, to use in his stand up comedy act at a bar in Shanghai.
Google didn’t translate it correctly and he got something like, “just shut the fuck up” instead.
Ironically, he penned a book called, “Shut the F–k Up”, a self help concept as a way of dealing with self doubt and he is now making tons of money leading empowerment courses for his publisher, High House.
