Failing is easy; I’ve been doing it for years!

Back in the 1970s there was a song by Dr. John – Right Place, Wrong Time” – which was the story of my life. It became my mantra when I added to it:  right dock, wrong boat; right plane, wrong airport; right bus, wrong terminal. Over the years things did not change: right novel, wrong era; right concept, wrong publisher. But, then and now, as a writer, I knew/know I only have to be successful once. Done right and if the gods being willing, one book will earn me a modest retirement, the same as I would have gotten by working for the government for two decades. That being said, the significant difference between me the writer and my friends who are government workers, is I am willing to fail.  I’ve done a lot of it over the years. But I am still here, still writing books, still waiting for that one book that will send me into retirement. Opportunity is like an ocean and I cannot wait for my ship to come in so – pardon, me, Dr. John, I am swimming for it.
