With all the craziness that is a writing career- the ups and downs- one thought makes it all worth while for me. It was a thought expressed best in the movie Julie and Julia- in the scene where Julia Child packs up her finished manuscript and pauses... she wants to drink in the moment...the possibility that the editor will love the book...that it would be a great hit...that others would read it and understand and share in her joy.
It is that moment that I live for...the moment where anything is possible. The moment where I see friends and readers reading the book- loving the characters- laughing and crying and sharing in the worlds in my head.
It's a moment you don't get in other professions...a moment that makes all the disappointments seem like dust in the wind. So, here's to those moments. May all your possibilities come true!
