“It’s been a bumpy, unpredictable ride, but I’m sure a lot of authors feel that way. My in-laws live
in a real out of the way place and it’s hard to get there. I always laugh at a sign in the road we pass. After we’ve driven about 30 minutes on roads not big enough for one car let alone two, that
have 90 degree turns, impossibly steep uphill climbs, and drop-offs that’ll make your head spin,
a sign greets you with the warning ‘Winding Road Next 2 Miles.’ And I’m thinking, ‘What were
the last fifteen?!’ That’s the writing life. It’s hard and scary and people randomly show up to tell
you stuff you already know like, ‘You’re not gonna make any money.’ But you just can’t beat
those views on the way.”
