For Writers: It's Not Always About Sales

My wife teaches special education and reading. She shared with one of her students that I write horror novels. The student was very interested and asked if he could read one of my stories.

Jenn asked if I could modify one of my stories and make it age appropriate for a middle schooler. I was able to clean up a vampire short story to make it suitable for middle school. With permission from the student's parent, Jenn brought the story in and is reading it with the student.

Early reports indicate big scares and thumbs up from her student. The parent was appreciative. I call that a win. Sometimes success in writing isn't just about readership, sales, or money. I need to remember that.
