Of course I'm wondering if I just have an enormous head and am inflating the importance of my writing, but a part of me doesn't like the idea that I would have to pay to use a piece in a book I wrote. That's just insult to injury.
I still have a couple of pieces to finish and then a business proposal -- and a book proposal if I have time. My goal is to have all these things done before September. Wish me luck, I may need it!
