Along for the ride
Up here in Hicksville, it's easy to forget that other people exist in the world. With a click of my fingers, I find these friends and catch up right where we left off. I'm itching for the next conference to see them, but sad that my book won't be for sale there. Ah well.
The funny thing is . . . I never felt like I'd paid my dues. I was picked up by a publisher after only writing for a year and a half. I'd taught myself all I knew, and never had any formal education in writing. I guess I'm paying my dues now. We all have to. We have to work hard, continue believing in ourselves and supporting those around us.
I'm plodding on, fixing my book so I like it again, and working on another. My career is only beginning and I'll keep stepping forward until I reach my goal. I don't know how long it will be, but I do know one thing. The ride will be a blast with all the friends I'm bringing along! And that's all that matters.
