Today’s post is a dedication to all the people who helped me get to the point I’m at right now: On the brink of my first major publication. My first thought is, “Crap.

All I can say is, grab some popcorn and be prepared to laugh. You know… at me. Whatever. What you’re about to read… Continue reading Day 9 – Interpreting Inspiration
