What does success mean to you?

I’ve been thinking a lot about what success means to me. After all, if you don’t know what you’re looking for, how will you know when you got there, right?

For me, I think success looks like affecting someone deeply. I don’t need to be famous, or make a ton of money, or have a car that looks like someone should be reclining on the hood. I want to be at a signing some day, and have someone look me in the eyes and tell me that something I wrote made a difference to them, that it was a little easier to get through a dark night because of the words I wrote.
