They always say "never give up" but, when you've been writing for around 32 years and success is as elusive as ever, isn't it time to face reality?
Recently, this realisation dawned on me when I thought suddenly of all the writing and numerous submissions I've done. We all know what we're up against (unless we're starters) but I should have got somewhere by now. It seems that Fate is telling me I'm deluded and should turn to something else. What that is, I have no idea because I thought that writing was the only thing I did well.
I'm not writing at the moment and have found it particularly difficult to get started over the last year or so but I did think of submitting something to a digital publishing company as a last push. Unfortunately, I can't work up any enthusiasm to do something that would probably end with nothing, as usual. It seems I'm beating my head against a brick wall.
Some Talkbackers will have experience of being published digitally. If so, what was your experience of the mechanics of it and did it result in any interest from book publishers or literary agents? Apparently, this is the way some writers are taken up.
This post is rather whingey so I'll finish it with a literary joke. No. Can't think of one.
