    I ignore the fantasy. I’m working hard at getting more books out there and I try to keep the marketing going. I do my bookkeeping, so I know how much I’ve made, and how many books I’ve sold. But beyond that, I ignore it. I don’t check my Amazon ranking. There’s not a thing I can do about it that I’m not already doing, so why obsess?

      I would like to be this grounded. Thankfully I have grounded people around me. I don;t check my ranking- mostly cause I don’t know how LOL 🙂

    My entire Oprah appearance plan involves stress-eating beforehand and then buying and wearing as much shapewear as I can get on my body to whip it into a pretty figure. Forget that camera’s 10 pounds; I’ll fight back by shifting 20 pounds around to where they belong! LOL.

    You know, I was just telling my son yesterday that a lot of famous singers don’t hit until their 3rd, 4th, or 5th album. And often those who look like the just debuted played in small clubs for years before they got noticed. It does take time, but patience is tough to have. Keep planning your interview! Dream big. 🙂

      Shapewear- what a great idea then I don;t have to give up snickers bars 🙂 It’s true all artists have to create, explore, and put out there work long before they are ‘suddenly discovered’ But still I want to have my Oprah dress ready just in case 🙂
