The summer before I started fifth grade, my local library moved. They invited patrons to check out all the books they wanted from the old location, keep them twice as long as normal, and return them to the new one. I checked out 33. Those stacks of books on the dining room table were magic. I still feel the same about books I love, which are the ones I review and rate.

I'm a writer currently based in Texas because I can't be everywhere at once. My first novel is Among the Lesser Gods and I'm at work on the second, City of Walls. You can read about my life in Saudi Arabia and elsewhere abroad at http://www.margocatts.com/foreigngirl. You can find more adventures from extraordinary global-citizen women (plus one of mine) in Once Upon an Expat.

And now I'm going to tell you what I tell myself: The only thing over which I have control is my own creative process and product. How I'm received, what else is in the market, industry activity...I can't do a thing about any of it. Writing is the tool for figuring out what you're thinking, so if you become aware of some flicker of an idea, nourish that flicker and don't worry about anything else. Write, wrestle, throw away, and write some more. It's only through writing that you'll find out what's in you and in your idea, not from looking at what others are doing or from sticking your finger in the wind to try to gauge the climate for a thing you haven't created yet. Create. When you're finished, you'll have something no one else in the world could have made, and you'll be richer and wiser for it, no matter what becomes of it commercially. (less)
