This will never ever be you.

So, you have the vague inclination to become a writer of some kind. Good for you! That will make you sound smart and creative when you tell that to people at parties. It will also make your parents incredibly depressed. But what happens if you finish your first big project and it's not as transcendently great as you're expecting it to be? What if it's only really good? Or... what if it's bad?! Fortunately, after reading this post, you won't ever have to deal with any of those questions or concerns. Because you only have to acknowledge failure if you get far enough to fail. And, if you follow these ten steps, I guarantee you will never get that far.
