You scoot away from the Gone Girl table and, as you’re looking around, you become suddenly aware of just how many books there are in the store. You reason that if all these people got books published, there’s no reason you can’t do it too. It’s high time you gave another chance to that novel you wrote nine pages of in college. In a fit of motivation, you pluck every inspirational writing manual and style guide in sight and rush toward the counter, leaving a trail of Anne LaMott and Stephen King as you go. Your destiny calls! Go forth and add to this endless sea of letters and words! As you hit the exit, you look over your shoulder and smile, imagining all the shelves they’ll have to move to fit the crowd in attendance at the first stop on your book tour.
