The theme of the story is that you can be able to take whatever life has given you & spin it into gold (becoming a successful writer in this story). You can manage to do a lot of things in your life that you & others think you're not capable of. A very inspirational sentence in the story, that emphasises the theme ,is "Along the way there has been straw for the taking. With a little imagination, it can be spun into gold."
