Writing is hard. It's not like you can just sit down at the computer and pump out bestsellers. Writing is really hard. Writing and revising and writing some more, trying to write the best book possible. I think it's just natural to doubt myself. To ask myself, why am I doing this?
Well, why? It's hard.
Because (1) I love it. It's the best challenge I've ever faced, and (2) I read books that make me say, wow, I wish I can make someone feel like that when they close my book someday.
So, thank you, VCFA, for helping me rise to the challenge, and thank you, John Green and Jay Asher, for wiping the floor with my emotions.
