Being a creative writer has never been easy. From learning craft, to practicing it, to selling your work.
But that enthusiasm we felt sparked into passion as we got more involved in it and it continues to ignite us through long and hard road of getting published.
We are ready to make money from our writing. And it stands to reason that we should. We have already perfected our profession. Shouldnít money follow?
It doesnít because being a good writer does not guarantee a publisher will notice you. So as rejection letters begin piling up you begin to question whether being a writer was actually a good idea or should you have hit yourself over head.
Being a writer is most wonderful thing. And there isnít just one road to success.
If you are submitting your work to publishers and getting nowhere all you have to do is one thing. Change your mind.
Stop and think for a moment. You write. The product is yours. So why do you need someone to sell it for you? Why do you need to perfect those dreaded query letters just to get noticed? And why do you have to suffer for your art?
Because only way you can sell it is through publishers?
Wrong. Very wrong.
Put in same amount of hard work you are putting in submitting to publishers and actually get somewhere in your life.
The truth is writes have had a gut full of whole publishing processÖ
