I am an Author

Dear Authors, repeat after me:

 

I am an author.

 

If I have to explain my work, I have failed.

 

If I have to defend my work, I have failed.

 

If I have to harass people into sampling my work, I have failed.

 

I value a reader’s opinion but am not defined by it.

 

My work should speak for itself. If it cannot, I have failed.

 

My first duty is to entertain. 

 

My second duty is to continue to hone my craft. 

 

My final duty is to move on to the next project. 

 

 

I am an author.
