Who remembers those Choose Your Own Adventure books? Along with R.L. Stine and Caroline B. Cooney thrillers, I lived for those tales. Shoot, I lived vicariously through most books in the 80s and 90s.
I think an awful lot about choosing your own adventure in life. How none of us can really anticipate what’s going to happen. We just have to make a choice and keep moving.
Last spring, Shaunta Grimes and I were interviewed by Medium Staff regarding our experiences with the MPP.
One of the most memorable parts of the interview for me was when I suggested that writers give up on their specific notion of success. I think this is imperative for every writer, and it’s something I try to talk about a lot.
I’ve never gotten sick of talking about that, actually.
See, it’s great to have big goals, but when it comes to your vision of success, I think it’s much more effective to open yourself up to the possibilitiesinstead.
None of us really knows what’s possible, which is why I share my personal experiences here. At the end of the day, we’re all on a different Medium journey and we each choose our own adventure with every step along the way.
