I’ve got to admit that I’ve been happier than I have been in a long time. And it’s not because I have deal prospects or whatever. It’s because I love what I’m writing, and my opinion is really the only one I can control. So I will write what I makes me smile, what make my heart flutter, what keeps me up at night with ideas and characters and dialogue.
