Yup, it's been a heady couple weeks here in Ronland. New book out. A couple favorable reviews. A first print run (modest, but still) that sold out in 9 days. It's all great, and I'm really excited about it, and about the possibilities for Headlong in the world.
I'm also reminding myself of what this writing life is all about, and why I do it. I do it for the work itself, and for the conversations that result from it. The people I get to meet, and maybe know.
And that makes me remember one of my favorite quotes. It's on my writing wall, and tattooed on my forehead as I hit the road:
"I refuse to write for more people than I can listen to." - Thomas Sayers Ellis.
