"For a long time I worried whether or not people were going to take me seriously as a writer, if I would earn their respect, and I think it did more harm than good. You can’t control what other people think, and even the most well-respected and lauded authors have their detractors, sometimes vocal and angry ones. You can’t please everyone.
Now I feel like success is defined by how much fun I’m having. If it’s not fun for me, I’m not going to do it anymore."
Thank you to Nancy Christie at the One on One blog for inviting me to the site during October.
