zenpencils READER OF THE MONTH! It’s been awhile since I’ve highlighted a Zen Pencils special reader who is doing awesome things. Thought it might be easier to just post it here. So I’d like to introduce you to @sakshama “I’m 29 years old, from New Delhi, India. Since I was a kid, the top item on my bucket list has been "Write a book before you turn 30". Even while I toiled away as a corporate rat through most of my 20s, I didn't stop chasing my big dream. But I failed - miserably and repeatedly.

Last year I moved to San Francisco, California, leaving behind a cushy job at an e-commerce company in order to support my husband in his career path. Our move considerably slimmed down my chances of employment, and having no friends or family around didn't help ease the situation. And even though I crossed half the world, I was unable to shed my baggage - the baggage of failure.

After receiving a harshly-worded rejection from a literary agent (and eating fourteen brownies in one sitting), I came across the your comic The Woman in the Arena by Brené Brown.

These words became a mantra, my very own war cry. I would wake up thinking "dare greatly" and fall asleep chanting it. I spent the next three months revising my manuscript, spending night after night writing and rewriting. And while I cannot say I was without the fear of failure, I will confess that I was definitely less afraid because in my heart, I knew I was daring greatly.

And that is the beauty of staring down your fears - they eventually tire out and look away. Soon after the new manuscript was ready, not only did I sell it to one of the biggest publishers in the world, I signed a two-book contract with them. My debut novel The Wedding Photographer debuted on May 1, a week before my 30th birthday!

We met at Berkeley at your signing last year and you congratulated me on getting published.” What a great story. Congrats on the book Turning 30 was also a motivating factor for me to get off my butt and take my cartooning dream seriously. Nothing like the inevitable march of time to scare you into action! - Gav #zenpencils #community #bestreaders

zenpencils A few comments from my latest comic. I'm so fortunate that 99.9% of my readers are thoughtful, intelligent and open minded. I don't engage as much as I used to because I just can't reply to everyone but I still check them. #bestreaders #community #zenpencils 2w
