This Writing Thing
It's going to happen for me. I'm claiming that right now. It's already happening, but it WILL happen even more. All these discussions about stats and "backup plans" . . . I can't be worried about those right now. I have one goal--to be a successful author. I'm a GOOD writer, and someone in NYC will figure that out and be willing to take a chance on me. 2008, y'all better be ready for it. And when I get low and full of doubt, I'm coming back to THIS POST to remind myself that there is greatness ready for me to claim it, and I do. None of that soft-footedness of last year. This year, I'm not going to be afraid to be great, and I'm not going to be ashamed of the fact that I AM a good writer (it doesn't make sense, I know, but that's how I felt). I'm not. So, be ready for me.
