The answer to career and lifestyle quandaries is simple, really. We only need to know the WHAT that we want. The HOW and WHY aren't necessary--in fact, they can be obstacles to action.
Mike McManus, Founder of the Source Experience
While we are storytellers and may need to now the Who, What, When, Where, Why and How of our tales, the above quote reassures us that we DO NOT need all that info to pursue our careers.
So no matter whether you will only go the traditionally published route, or you are all-Indie (like me), or you are going Indie while you await that traditional contract, remember the brass ring we all seek:
- To type up the creations that live in our minds.
- To enjoy the process.
- To celebrate each The End.
- To memorialize each In The Beginning.
Best wishes, all!
