Diana Wright, Bestselling Author

Okay, so I'm shifting my expectations and envisioning the day in the future when I will be introduced as "Diana Wright, bestselling author. Her books have sold over 1 million copies." Wow, it's kind of cool. And why not?

I mean if 2 years ago, someone had introduced Barack Obama as the next President of the United States, how many people would have giggled over the the odds of it happening. But no one is laughing now (especially not Senator Hilary Clinton).

So I'm resetting my expectations. I don't want to simply be published. I want to have touched thousands and thousands of people's lives in a positive way, whether I taught them something or simply brightened their day. It isn't about the income, though that is important also. We all have bills to pay and would like to be free of financial worries. But having lots of people buy something that you wrote, means that many people have found value in those words. I want, no expect, to one day be a best-selling author.
