I didn’t know the first thing about publishing. And to make matters worse, the

singular goal in life was to become a writer. There was no stopping me. And now

sent emails and met with librarians. I connected with other authors and asked
tons of questions and took notes and heeded their advice. I even bought a book

world where the sum of all human knowledge is free and ubiquitous and accurate
and immediate, not knowing is no longer a valid excuse.
It’s hunger. It’s who wants it more. Period.
