Talent is just the word we use when we don’t understand the process of success and maybe we don’t want to believe it. Talent is the word I hear people use when they want me to agree with them that they could never do what I’ve done. But that’s not true. If you want to be a writer and sell to a national audience, you can do that. There’s a path that will take you there if you follow it. Throwing up your hands and saying, I’m just not talented is an excuse and I refuse to accept it. And telling me I’m talented isn’t a compliment. It’s a way of skipping the process and looking only at the result. It’s a way of erasing the years of work and determination that are the real factors in success at anything.
