I just read a post on kboards about a trucker who worked 70 hours a week and still managed to chase his dream of being a writer. He wrote in the sleeper of his truck and cranked out 178K words in less than 6 months. He quit his day job and started writing full time. Now he’s getting “All Star Bonuses” from Kindle Select. That guy right there went for it.
And he got it.
Stories like that make my dream seem not so foolish. Or at least it inspires me to follow along the other fools like me.
For anyone out there who needs some motivation or inspiration, whether you’re a writer, a student, or anyone who has a dream, I recommend you read his post. It’s a great story.
