Sue Monk Kidd

I wake up at 4:15 A.M., get some coffee, turn on the news, see what's happening, go clickety-clack on the web to see what I missed overnight. Then I go to the gym, around 5:15, and I do what appears to be a very light workout, but who cares. I'm socializing with other nice people at the gym. Then I go into work, and I'm really awake.

J. B. Smoove

Some say I'm an overnight success. Well, that was a very long night that lasted about 10 years.

I can't worry about genres or markets or what might be commercial or not. That never works.
