Being a Writer



So, you want to be a writer...

and (let's be honest) you'd like to be the author of this...



BUT BEFORE THAT CAN HAPPEN, YOU NEED TO FACE THE SCARIEST THING IN THE WORLD....

It's not this...
Or this...

It's not even this...

It's this...


But after a great deal of this...

And a touch of this...


You will end up with this...

Which will become this...

Or even this...


You must trust, someday, you will end up with this...


Or even this...


And who knows? Maybe you are the next...

Why not?

  8. I want to have a pile of books written by me. That would be a wonderful legacy to leave behind for my family. Although, none of them know I even write. Wow, that would be cool, my Will could be a surprise for everyone, they each get copies of my books. Cool.

    Thanks for reminding me why I write.
