Thanks, this is inspiring.

I’m trying to write books inside a life of chaos and insecurity. I often think I should be earning money or cleaning up the physical chaos … writing feels self-indulgent. And so far, it has cost much more money than it has made, which makes it even more self-indulgent.

Occasionally my work touches someone deeply, and I realize that I am adding something to the world.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
