My Ego Shelf
This is my Ego Shelf. It's a collection of all the books and magazines I've had fiction published in (not necessarily under the name "Janine Ashbless"). It allows me to measure my sense of self-worth very directly. My ego is 13.5 inches long. Or if you prefer, it is Nineteen at the moment.
Obviously this is pretty small by the standards of some writers. But I'm working on it. And I confidently expect it to grow more this year! In the meantime I keep my ego shelf over my PC so that I can stare at it when I'm feeling down or useless.
