What are your ambitions for your writing career?
Not everyone would opt to embark on a sailing trip only to find out too late that it's taking place during monsoon season. Not everyone would jump at the offer to help crew a new boat with a set of strangers when my own experience as a sailor is limited. I'm not even a strong swimmer. And few would survive the storms that batter ship and psyche alike but I came to discover that the illusions in my world were real, and my only hope was to let go of fear and embrace the unknown.
