I have two favourite Marilyn Monroe quotes. She was talking about acting, and life, but both can be applied to writing.

“Just because you fail once doesn’t mean you’re gonna fail at everything.”
“It’s all make believe, isn’t it?”

Click here to read the last interview with Marilyn Monroe, first published in Life magazine on August 17, 1962.

Monroe’s autobiography was first published in 1974 by Stein and Day [below], 14 years after her death, and is still in print from Taylor Trade Publishing.
