The new year started in a whirlwind. I wrote three essays over the holidays. Two of them got on media outlets of high traffic volume. The third one was picked up on the front page of another popular website. Visits to my blog grew in leaps and bounds. I got more email followers in the first week of 2015 than in the past 12 months combined.
The sudden popularity felt surreal. I haven't changed after all. Every day it still takes pulverizing my entire brain to put the right words on page. You can say I was simply in the right place at the right time. If you are spiritual, you call it "grace." Otherwise, you call it "luck."
