Advice to Writers on the Career Path

Stop looking where you are going! In fact, just stop. There, you’ve arrived. Now, look around. Look up, even. Get to know the place. Maybe it’s been years since you’ve left a book. Just stand still for a moment. Don’t forget to breathe. Ahhhhh … human, welcome home. When you do go back to the book, go as an equal now. Bring blessings for the other humans you may find there, wandering. Offer them your hand. Write them a map back to themselves.
