What about the next step of becoming a tattoo artist? Have you ever thought of doing that?

I made a promise to myself to not read anything more than six pages in a book before I finished the first chapter. I knew how important it was to do so. Not to mention how it’s part of my addiction. How difficult it was to read in those first six pages, and why is it important?
Why it’s important: I had read so many short stories/novels that I had forgotten how wonderful and meaningful they are. So in many ways, I was able to write this book at a time when I felt like I needed to give it my all and I wanted to make sure that every single page could be written.
