My mood today, and some major props

For years now, I’ve had a dream of making it in the fiction world. It was kind of far-fetched. It was pretty much impossible.

But today it’s hitting me… I may actually pull this off…

And as soon as this euphoria hit me, my very next thought was this…

Let there be no doubt: I have the best wife ever. And on a day like today (when I’m actually on a high and believing in myself), I’m really reminded of how much my wife Danah has helped me to believe in myself and get to this point.

And I’ll never forget when I was practically ready to give up on “Little Man,” she told me that not only was it a good book, but she wanted to re-read it someday.

Wow. Just wow…

Maybe I would have still published it at some point, but maybe I wouldn’t have. (After all, there were so many before it that I had given up on…) Who knows. Anyway, never let there be any doubt about how much credit she deserves.

Keep the faith,

Stan R. Mitchell

Oak Ridge, Tenn.

    She sounds like a good one, Stan. Be sure to let her know what she means to you. 🙂

    If he hasn’t told her, or shown her by now, he’d be history! Still waiting for a Nick Woods or Little Man sequel! SF.

      So true, Mike. So true.

      And I’m at 37,000 words on the Nick Woods sequel. Maybe 2 more months on it if I’m lucky…???

        The masses await. Now get off of here and get back to writing!

    Dude, it sounds like you have already won. The rest is just gravy.

    I happen to look forward to reading the gravy, too.
