I am 30 years old and I’ve decided I’d like to become a writer.
I would like to win an overall placement in a running race or a triathlon.
I will keep trying until I get something published somewhere Good.
I will do speed work.
I will do long, slow writings.
I will take rejections like bad races, like injuries, or rather not like injuries, since I won’t nurse them, or cater to them, or ice them and rest them. I will keep going.
I will run a marathon.
