I’d like a playbook, please. You know, the x’s and o’s of how to navigate the publishing world successfully while maintaining your hard-fought-for sense of self?
Oh, I know it can be done. I see people do it all the time. Just not me.
Perhaps, the problem is that I’m neither an “x” nor an “o”?
Maybe, I’m simply a “y.”
Yep, that somehow seems appropriate.
