Make a living as a writer
Get on Oprah
Get published in a magazine I subscribe to.
Be a columnist
See my books on the Barnes and Noble tables, preferably not the uberdiscount rack.
I'm excited to share with you that this morning I opened my mailbox and there it was: a national trade magazine with my article in it. I think I embarrassed Sam by documenting the moment but, whatever, it was my moment. Had I done the dance of joy right then and there, then we could talk about embarrassment.
Phone's ringing. Better grab it, it could be Oprah.
