Before I read a single book on writing, attended my first conference, or crafted a query, I believed--believed--the following:
That if you wrote a book, it got published.
That when it was published, you earned at least a six-digit figure for it.
That after you remodeled the house, you traveled the world, talking about your novel, in places like Bhutan.
That your chances on getting on Oprah with your book was maybe one in three.
That when that book then became an instant bestseller and award-winner, you spit out another masterpiece in no time, then another four or five.
For a while there, I must've confused myself with John Grisham.
