True Success for the Creative Writer

“In American culture, success is defended almost solely in monetary terms — we are defined by what we do for a living, and our success is measured by how sumptuous a living we earn. It is an easy jump to assume that if we cannot manage to earn a living through our creative work, then we are failures and our work must be worthless. How sad this is, and how short-sighted.”   — Eric Maisel
