I love being in bookstores. Who doesn’t agree?
While I was in our local Barnes & Noble the other day, I randomly opened a book and found this gem:
To pursue the impossible is madness: and it is impossible for bad men not to act in character.
Marcus Aurelius, Meditations
I guess this spoke to me because I have had self-publishing on my mind a lot. Some days, the idea of it feels impossible. Why bother? Who is going to read my books? How are they going to stand out amongst millions of others? How will I find the time to promote them?
It takes a lot of self-persuasion to convince me that self-publishing is not impossible, in fact it’s completely doable. So as I ponder this quote, I reflect upon what, exactly, remains impossible.
