I did have a topic planned to write about today.
I ditched it for the following:
HITTING IT BIG AND HOW TO DO IT, by Tahereh Mafi*
It's a must-read. And not just a "Oh, this is cool" must-read. Like, a must-must read. It brought tears to my eyes, in a totally good, someone's-been-there-and-I'm-encouraged way. I'm tempted to just copy it here so you really do read it...but that's not quite fair. :) So go read what Tahereh has to say about hitting it big.
* Tahereh is repped by WritersHouse, recently announced her publishing deal with HarperTeen and that Twentieth Century Fox has acquired the bigscreen rights to the upcoming book, SHATTER ME.
