See this fortune cookie?! That is how writer’s block looks to a fortune cookie writer.
Donald Lau, CFO at Wonton Food, Inc. has been the writer behind ALL those fortune cookies we read after our Chinese meals. Can you imagine, 30 years of creatively writing 100 fortunes a year? That is a big job! I commend him for writing this long. We all know that “writer’s block” is terrible.
Mr. Lau hired his replacement, a fellow by the name of James Wong, 43 years old. It’s good that Wong is young, if he follows in Mr. Lau’s footsteps, he could be writing fortunes well into his 70s.
Did you know that Wonton Food, Inc. is the largest manufacturer of fortune cookies in the United States? They have operations in New York, Texas and Tennessee.
Since reading this story, I have a better appreciation for fortune writing.
Here is one message that I saved. It was a good one.
How about YOU, do you have a special fortune you saved?
Curious to know… WHAT was YOUR FORTUNE?
