--I’M A BIG BELIEVER IN SECOND CHANCES
…Yesterday was a good day. I had three stories and one poem accepted. Today another story. That makes 892.
…Some days, most days, I feel like the luckiest man on the planet. If I die tomorrow, it won’t really matter. I’ve had so much joy (and pain) and incredible experiences and I got to do the thing I love most, which is write fulltime.
I’m definitely a lucky guy.
