I also think I am a small person, and only a writer sufficient to communicate. I may be able to compensate for that with the earning and saving I did over the preceding decade, which has given me a little more time than most can hope for to research and organize, and to design a story worth telling. I’m trying to overcome bad odds by working harder, longer.
If I fail at least my son will know I tried. And I think that will give him what he needs to try himself. Then maybe he will not fail.
