I am writing to tell you that at this point I’ve tried and tried to get something going with writing and this blog in particular. I’ve followed all the rules and did all the work and what do I have to show for it? Nothing. Publishing Sucks.
Publishing should be at least challenging and fun, and frankly, right now it’s not. I have too much caffeine running in my veins. I am overworked, and running fast out of time to get anything done.
I have in the big picture no one who seem to care about any thing I write or want to publish. I simply get letters of rejection and snide comments from people who should know better. I think I am going in the wrong publishing direction.
Publishers, I do want to get a book or even several out, published and in bookstores, but that looks and seems so far away. If I cannot get friends to come and read this blog, on a regular basis, why should I think that I would be allowed to get a publishing contract with you?
Publishing books is hard enough. The fact that no traditional publisher cares is worse. I simply need to chat with any of my close friends to know that writing isn’t something that they do. Even if it was they certainly won’t read anything I’ve written this much is clear.
I should sit down in front of the Television and waste my life there until I become a fat slob eating nothing but junk food. I can’t and won’t do that insanity, and yet I can’t convince myself that publishing doesn’t suck… at this point at least.
Or do they? You are, right, or you’ve scrolled too far, which one is it?
Other writers slave away like me some days never believing that their dreams could become a reality. Maybe I am thinking of publishing too small. They do it with just as much time as I have and for this I should care. I do about them.
Yet, we never consider ourselves better, especially when there is little support. I’ve heard way to many times when you’re done this “thing” will we get a break. My answer no.
Publishers, do you understand what every writer who really wants their work out needs to go through? I suspect you do, but I’m not talking about the bottom line, I do not understand that, I simply understand writing with passion, something which I am running out of.
I want my book published.
Still I can say one thing, this blog is my version of online publishing, and I am a writer. Something that I can say proudly, I am still a writer.
