Being a writer is one of the greatest challenges I have ever faced. Although writing has become as essential to me as breathing, it has also become a formidable mountain to climb. On one hand, there are my wonderful readers. Thank God for them! They truly make all the hours, days, months, and years of writing worthwhile. But on the other hand, there has become this personal challenge that I have set up for myself to become a better writer with each book that I write.
The bar rises and I face the challenge. To retain those wonderful readers, I must succeed. But more importantly, to feel worthy of having those readers, I must prove it to myself that I can become a better writer each time.
