Doesn't matter if one or many people read your book -- as long as you can reach that one person. One my favorite writers, James Joyce, stated that he wrote to connect with others to find that one person who got him. And he went through hell and back to do it - half-blind. Because he desperately needed to write. If you are writing for fame or fortune, find something else. Only write because you love it. And develop a thick skin -- because not everyone will like what you write.(less)

This past Friday, I realized a life-long dream, I got to be the guest at a book club discussion of my novel.

Overall, the participants enjoyed my book. Amongst the questions they asked was how did I come up with the story?
Or figure it out? Did I know it ahead of time? Today, another reader asked me the same question - "how do you come up with these stories? Do they just pop into your head?"

Slightly better than Dragonflight upon re=reading, but not as wonderful as I'd remembered it. McCaffrey, it should be noted, is a minimalist in regards to writing style, with an unadorned textual style and basic dialogue. Her focus in on situation re ...more

“No, you don't know what it's like
When nothing feels all right
You don't know what it's like
To be like me
To be hurt
To feel lost
To be left out in the dark
To be kicked when you're down
To feel like you've been pushed around
To be on the edge of breaking down
And no one's there to save you
No, you don't know what it's like
Welcome to my life”
