The other day I got an email through my website. Ya know, that little contact me section is really there for a reason... it's over on the left side of the page if you suddenly feel inspired to shoot me a message. :)
What I got in response was amazing! Turns out, an awesome teen had a homework assignment to contact a famous artist (writer/musician/comedian/etc.) and she picked ME! HOLY COW! I may die just from that... I was considered "famous" enough to warrant being this girl's homework assignment!
Do I consider myself to be famous? Nope. But apparently, I'm known- which is something else entirely.
I hope to keep staying known. I hope my workings keep finding people and more people get inspired (another thing that inspires me!) to follow their dreams!
I'm not rich and famous (that would be AWESOME), I'm more of a known and growing kind of writer. A friend once asked me if I was writing stories to make money or to tell the tale... it was in the beginning when I was disappointed because I was making millions instantly... the truth is, I write because the words flow through my veins and demand to be put on paper. I write because the people living in my head need their story told. I write because I hope to bring a small place to escape for some people and for others to be inspired. And I write because I was born to... whether I am famous, rich, poor, and unknown, it doesn't matter. I would still and do still write.
