follow-up on "positivity"

Wasting a little time, I just did a search for the aforementioned author's invented word "sticktoitivity." Turns out an unknown named Walt Disney used and perhaps coined the term. What is with these people?

Someone asked me recently if, because I'm an editor, that also means that I want to be a writer. I responded that I have no desire to write because (a) it's hard work and (b) I don't have an original thought in my head. Maybe I'm just wise enough to admit it.

Well, that's good to know. I guess like me he had his horns filed down a long time ago.
