Sarah leads us off today by posing the question “Can anyone be a successful author?” which, of course, leads into a discussion of what success means. Is it being published? Is it being a bestseller? Is it great reviews?
And, if you answered “Success equals money”, then we address that in more detail. What are realistic expectations about earnings?
We then play a rollicking game of The Storymatic, where we cast aspersions on Abraham Lincoln. Your story, dear listeners, must include the a dropout, a prodigy, one half of a ripped love letter, and a talent show. There must be a woman with a mustache, but she cannot be made fun of, and the story must take place in a closed system–no one can go in or out.
