Today I checked the "Talent" page over at Mlr Press.
Oh. My. Fecking. Word.
I'm up there.
Big as life, and twice as pretty. Even if I do say so myself.
So, now...am I there? A really, truly, no fooling author?
Well, I believe you're an author the first time you pick up a pen or tap the keyboard to create a story simply because you...must. Like breathing. I think I was about four or five the first time I wrote because I had to.
Still, it's awfully nice to get the validation!
