for anyone who is putting the cart before the horse:  rookiemag.com/2012/12/late-blo…

read it.  the whole thing.

the quote that brought me here from tumblr:   When I was 22, I thought that I deserved success just because I wanted it, and not because I'd actually earned it.

meow.  

she's right, you know.  

u mad?  don't be mad at me or her.  be mad at yourself for being an entitled brat.

(read the comments at that article, too.  you're not alone.  no one walks alone on a planet of seven billion. and if you leave defensive bullshit here... well... just don't.  it's still my birthday for another hour and a half and i had a long fucking day)

Good stuff from witwitch --> witwitch.deviantart.com/journa…

I sort of stopped caring about "success" as a writer a while back. I found out pretty early that writing isn't exactly a lucrative career. It's just something that I love doing, have wanted to do since 5th grade, and want to improve at. That isn't to say I won't run around the neighborhood cheering if I get published at some point though. I do want it but not so much that I'd want it without feeling like I've earned it. Haha!

Happy Late Birthday ^_^
