(Pictured here: A photo of the second edition of my debut paperback and I from 08/24/2016).
As I wrote my first e-Book in 2015, I gave in to this crazy belief that my writings would carry me to the path of fame. I too invested in a delusional assertion that writer's block would never affect me. Well, three [available] publications and several revisions later, I am proud to say that I have definitely made money...though not enough to be taxed for it. Writer's Block also slapped me while I was dozing beneath a blanket of denial and I've been traumatized ever since.
On a serious note though, it is better to succeed by positively touching one life than to receive a surplus of money and wide recognition. Truth is, I have no doubt that my work has influenced at least one person for the better.
