Cheer up Charlie

Look at me now! Barnes and Noble teen book festival full of incredible authors to discuss our books and our writing process and all that other good stuff. I would have never in a million years thought I would be spending a weekend not only attending one panel, but TWO! I sold books at Barnes and Noble, me. It’s times like these that I get so overwhelmed with how far I’ve come and how hard I’ve work toward my dreams.

Unfortunately, not everyone sees the world as I do. To me, I’m busting my butt for something I love, something I would love to do for the rest of my life. Others brush this off as nothing, I guess. It’s sad really. I had two separate events today that really bugged about the path I decided to take. Which is the risky path in case you didn’t figure that out.

I’m aware of the path I took. I’m aware my path could very well lead to no where. You don’t need to remind me that my life choice is very different. I see the looks, I hear the comments, so please, contain you’re ignorance for someone else.

Again, I went to Barnes and freakin’ Noble this weekend. I wrote two books. I wrote TWO books. Against the negativity I’m proud of myself. And that’s not something I say to myself often enough. So readers, be proud. Be Loud. Be kind.
