Yea, I ordered business cards. Soon I will have exactly one short story published so I went and ordered business cards. Do you know why? Because we need to celebrate our successes. This is my positive reinforcement. A year ago I was talking to a board of authors and they asked me what I wanted out of my writing. I told them, I wanted to get new business cards.
Something, that is tangible. Something that screams out to the world I have succeeded. Here is proof. I have a business card. With a flourish I can display my new writer’s card. The clouds part, and a sunbeam shines down on me.
I am a professional writer.
Beware world, I’m going to unleash prose like never before….
I am writer, read my words.
