Thanks. I guess my biggest problem is figuring out what my idea of success is. At first, I thought it would just be to write a book. That turned out to be the easy part so I had to set myself some varied level of goals. I targeted getting someone to read it as another goal, luckily I had the captive wife audience to do that. Then I branched out and had other people read it, and finally I had people who had not already been captivated by my boyish charm read and give me feedback.

So what I'm left with after all that is what did I really want to accomplish with all this. I can honestly say that being rich was never part of the plan and I guess the only thing left is to have someone pick my book at random, read it, and enjoy it. If I make a few bucks along the way, all the better. I've been blessed with a great wife, a fantastic kid and a good job which pretty much lets me do whatever I want. What else could a man ask for.

I like the idea of doing things myself, but am not afraid to ask for help when I need it and can surely benefit from it. I'm enjoying reading the comments here on WD and there are many of you here who offer some great advice and I think I'm learning a lot.

Thanks for all the good info to everyone who commented on my post. I plan on sticking around for a while as it's great fun to see all the different angles that are represented here on the site. I'll keep you posted as to my progress until you toss me out.

thanks again
