So well said! My goal is to make it to 100 followers at this point and will gradually increase with each milestone. I am trying to break it up into smaller goals not to overwhelm myself, and your thoughts on that were so validating.

I love your vulnerability in sharing your stats. I have similar ones so it's a breath of fresh air to see someone who is like me, as I can't help but compare myself to the authors that make A LOT more. Thank you again for this great piece - It touched me more than you know, and I agree with you - THAT is what matters when we write.
