Facing Forty Fiercely

I’m going a little off plot in today’s post. You see, by the time you read this, I’ll be 40.  I thought I’d be a lot more upset about turning 40, but it turns out that 30 was a lot harder. As I faced 30 in 2006, I’d just decided to become a writer instead of a lawyer, but I didn’t really know what it meant to “be a writer.”
