I was walking my dog today and I realized that the things I've done best in my life are the things I took my time on...worked my butt off...and kept going.
My book Michelangelo Lives Forever.
My play Muddy Boots.
Running a marathon.
I am not a gambler. Not one who wins anyway. I play one roll of nickle slots and then watch people throw their money away.
That doesn't mean I don't have the urges to do stupid things.
But it means that I'm starting to recognize my strengths and the way I work, which is something I need to know before finding a home for my writing.
And before I gamble all my nickels away.
