I was stunned. You write from the heart. You write what excites you about life. You write because you need to entertain, or to share your knowledge with others. You write because you are born a writer. And as a writer, your job is to give your words to the world, and then the world gets to react, judge, love, or despise what you have written for them. Like all writers, I wanted to be beloved and be a bestseller. Fortunately for the type of book I have written, I’m getting slightly more beloved everyday—yet still working hard on the bestseller part.
