I got an email from Amazon saying that due to my browsing history I might be interested in buying my own book. Very thoughtful of them.

We absolutely bonded over our love of video games. Games like Final Fantasy and World of Warcraft have offered her inspiration. She is a bit shy, but is relatively chatty about fantasy stories and writing advice. Her blog has some awesome information about editing and dialogue.
On her bio page she has an obsevation I needed to read. It gave me chills and made my eyes fill with tears:
Eighteen years after my project began the world of publishing has changed. I do not want to see my dreams destroyed by my own inaction. I’m also able to make those cuts and changes that my original manuscript needs. The time is near.
Happily married with three kids and working a full-time job means that writing time looks different than it did when I was younger. What matters is that I’m making the time to give voice to my characters and achieving my goals.
If you are writing and chasing your dreams, stop giving up and make your move like she did.
