Five panelists at the AWP conference in Seattle (February 26-March 1, 2014) posed this question and tried to answer it.
“How many readers will it take to feel I haven’t wasted my time?” asked moderator Valerie Vogrin, who’s at work on her second novel.
After considering the question from various angles and with various degrees of seriousness, she (perhaps tongue in cheek) came up with a figure: 150.
When I was younger, like in high school younger, I used to sing a lot. I wasn't all that bad, back in th’ day. Of course, when I sang with the school choir, I sang with my choir voice. When I sang alone in my bedroom using the hair brush as a microphone (oh come on, you did it too, admit it), I tried to sound like Barbara Streisand or whoever was on the radio at the time.
Back in high school a group of my friends formed a band. Someone played guitar, another friend played the drums, and like all high school bands, we thought they rocked the joint.

Previous posts are here and here. I'll be covering 2 months at a time for a bit in order to catch up with the reality of my actual launch.)…Continue
I have wanted so long to get back to writing. For years, writing was my constant companion, the invisible lover I couldn't wait to return to. I remember writing long into hundreds of humid Georgia nights, drinking tea and smoking Camel Wides. (I miss smoking too but I want to return to good habits.) I remember hardly ever being without a pen and paper nearby and writing on napkins, paper plates, cigarette boxes, receipts - anything that would hold my thoughts until I could tuck them away…
My book continues to move forward. I got edits back on Chapter 11, 12 and 13 yesterday. Finished with those edits, and am now working on Chapter 14. It's due Saturday. I'm also reading about the publishing world trying to learn about the industry.
I've been the New Girl a handful of times.
Second grade, eighth grade, freshman year of high school, freshman year of college, in addition to moving to an unknown city at 20 years old--then returning a year later.

"Men are from Mars and women are from Venus”—that is the age-old phrase that best explains the seemingly endless battle of the sexes. And while we technically aren’t from different universes, this mantra indicates a truth that we have learned to accept: we differ in more ways than not.
They say opposites attract though, right?
The differences between sexes are some of the first things noticeable at birth because of our telling…
