I stumbled across this negative post called The Truth about Publishing, and despite its ‘grumpy’ nature I agree with all Ian Irvine has to say. From thinking writing is easy to being one in a million books on the market, being published is not a quick pass to fame and fortune. Or, even a quick pass to being a writer.
Yet, this could be a ‘glass half full’ type of article. If you read this, and still think ‘I love writing, and it’s what I do. No matter how many obstacles to success I face’, then you’re doing better than most.
