The other night I realized that I finally DO know. I want to be what I am now. I want to be the one setting up the signing table, schmoozing with the fans, and helping authors make that connection with their readers. I want to be the one with the camera, roaming the room and taking pictures as the author talks with customers and signs their books. I want to be the one they mention in the acknowledgments because I've helped them make a particular dream come true.
It's only taken mumbledy-teen years, but it finally happened. I know what I want to be when I grow up!
(I still don't want to actually grow up…but that's another story.)
