I am never going to be a famous writer, so what’s the point?
I eventually realized that dreaming to be a famous writer is like riding an escalator to nowhere. There is no real destination, only a fantasy.
Reaching for success has led me to focus on why I write in the first place. I write because like every other artist I have a natural urge to create, to leave a trace of my existence and I choose to do it with words. I want to be successful in writing because who wants to be bad at something they love to do?
Instead of practicing my autograph, I work on my next piece. I play with words and sentences, its’ rhythm and tone, instead of daydreaming about the outfits I will wear on my book tour. My goals are to gain confidence in myself and to be respected as a writer. Of course, book signings and interviews will come after my first book.
