Success on Your Terms
The tricky thing about pursuing success over the long arc of a writing life is that the layers of who we are and who we have been are always reshuffling.
In Chapter 21 of Fierce on the Page, I say chances are good that we are all living by success standards we have outgrown, that someone else has set for us, or that we have unreasonably imposed on ourselves.
Can you think of one such example—and then let it go? What does success mean to you today, what small accomplishments are leading you there, and how do you intend to keep moving in that direction?
