I guess I'm getting better at making time for these things.

I had a good talk with Pop tonight about how to make a life for myself as a public speaker. He suggested it when I said I wanted to write non-fiction for a living. He said the money was in public speaking, and all of the sudden I had an aha! that's it, that's what I've been waiting to figure out moment. It fits with what I enjoy about psychology too. I think I can pull it off. I'm not sure I want to pull it off to the scale that Pop thinks on, Donald Trump, J.K. Rowling, Tony Robbins sort of scale, but that's because I don't just want to sell myself to the highest bidding lowest common demoninator. But I would like it if I could get behind whatever I wanted to do with some passion. That's really what I want. I won't be able to do it without some passion and genuiness. But there are lots of things I feel passionate about, so one of them has got to be marketable.

So I'll spend the year, along with work and raising a kid, staying sane by poking and prodding ideas and self into the bare bones of a workable commodity. And I'll exploit Pop for all he's worth, as long as we stay here. A couple more inspirational speeches and practical advice, and I'll be able to figure out how to do this. Really, I will.
