Love this post by Justine Larbalestier about when you know you’ve made it as a writer. Lots of hilarious items included like:
“. . . I get my very first fan letter. Someone read and enjoyed my book enough to write to me! Best. Day. Ever.
. . . the fan letters I get make me cry because they are so moving.
. . . the fan letters I get make me cry because they are so illiterate.”
Make sure to read through the whole list, because it’s awesome and a good reminder that being a writer isn’t about being on tour or having an agent or getting a Nobel Prize. It’s about writing.
(Couldn’t resist including Mary Tyler Moore in this one.)

That is a funny post, but also kinda depressing. Then I remind myself that’s not what I’m writing for anyway, all the hubbub, I just want to write to write. So, then I enjoyed the post again.
Sounds very similar to the post’s rant, doesn’t it? 🙂
Thanks for sharing.
Totally! That’s why I liked the last line so much. I might not win the Nobel, but at least I can shoot for having a story that I really love.
