I got to watch NBC’s new series Awake this Saturday, thanks to Hulu hosting it. Great pilot, Jason Isaacs did a wonderful job as the lead, and the concept is definitely interesting.

During the pilot, there’s a part where Detective Britten is talking to his son’s tennis coach. She talked about her aspirations to being a professional tennis player, and had a wonderful quote:


“I thought it’d be a lot more winning in Wimbledon, a lot less qualifying in New Jersey.”


It struck me how true this statement is for any aspiration.

As a writer, I spend a lot more time in the creation and forming of any project than in the glow of selling or publishing the work.

How about you, what’s your Wimbledon?
