Living in Obscurity

My dear friend Katie is wise, and wrote a great little blog post about choosing to live in obscurity:

Even if you have a modicum of success you’ll be just one of many. That is good. You should want it that way because notoriety is fickle. When you write you expose a bit of your soul and sometimes you don’t want all those eyes trained on you. Sometimes you want to take your words and hoard them. You want them to be just for you.
