This isn't so much a post as it is a declaration.
For 11 years I've been chasing the publication dream.
I've tried to do everything the so-called "right" way.
I bought into the convention that the "right" way, was the only way.
Well the closer I get, the less I like the look of the conventional path. Sure the trail is well lit and groomed but guess what, I'm a bit darker and twisted myself. I like to stomp through the undergrowth even if I have to pick out a few stickers.
Travis is stepping off the path. Travis is taking the scenic route. Travis is going hiking.
Yeah I just went third person while talking about myself. So what?
