Attend and be Enlightened

I received a message from Ng He Xiang (Hex) of 95% (The Writing Academy) is holding a free talk entitled About Writing in Malaysia and featuring authors Dina Zaman and David Byck this coming Monday 14th May from 8pm to 10pm.

The address is, 80A Wisma Dicklin, Jalan Bangsar. (Map below, click to enlarge.)

I'm not sure if you need to reserve a place or not, but you can call up Hex at 03-22876095/7095 or email hex@95percent.com.my

By the way, I never did find out why the organisation calls itself 95% ...

I assume it came from the saying "Writing is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration"? So it means that this academy can teach most of the perspiration. So if you still suck, you just don't have the extra 4% perspiration and 1% inspiration and it's therefore your own fault. Mwahaha!

Oops. The saying is actually "Genius is ..." and it's by Thomas Edison. I shall not quote again without Googling.

that makes sense ... but i didn't amke the connection because i always heard the saying as 99% perspiration ... and a check on the internet shows that this is the version most people use.

mind you, it's difficult to assess the actual balance of ingredients when there isn't a weighing scale
