Success and the Dream

A big question for many writers I am sure,
Particularly ones who are successful in other arenas, prior to the writing is...
Do I sustain the success or go for the dream...
I may be assuming a lot...
Going out on a limb, but what the heck...
I think most writers who truly love to write would chuck it all,
If they could write full-time, selling enough books to pay the bills...
But...
When said writer is successful, already, raking in nice dinero...
Me thinks (hell, I know)...
It is a bit more difficult to throw caution to the wind and be like NIKE,
And just do it...
I am often asked the question,
When are you going to stop crunching numbers and just write full-time...
I get a bit shifty-eyed when asked because sometimes that is a burning question...
One that rides on my shoulder and in my heart all the time...
'Oh in a few years is a good one'
'I'm not far from retirement is another one'
'A girl loves her shoes' is always good for a chuckle....
But the straight, flat-out truth is that having been raised by folks,
Who taught...
'A bird in the hand is better than two in the bush'
Not to mention...
'Security is nine tenths of the law'
Causes a sista to pause...
Think about...
Adding a bit more to the 401K...
While still typing away....

Just More Ramblings...

A sista is on the right track...control your own destiny...keep the faith...stay on track and keep that job until you're ready to retire...esp. since it's around the corner...now if you get a deal for $1MM take it and forget everything I just said...hehe.

Angelia, you'll know when the time is right that's for sure. All things will line up--the money and the security.
