Writer VL Towler recently shared a post at her blog that both humbles and instructs the writer I try to be in the world.

Ms. Towler’s novel, Severed, is scheduled for release this year.

I’ve had a great career in movies, television, and even an off Broadway play–just none of it is attributed to me, although my fingerprints are everywhere, even on television series that you are watching today.

But the Play button must be pushed. Life goes on.
