Fact: We’d like to have it sooner as opposed to later.
Fact: Sometimes, we’d like money but not the work.
Then, we might ask what happens when these facts don’t really happen? We can give up, stop blogging, or writing or making plans to publish. We also don’t like to spend too much money. After all, let’s be honest, even with our blogs or our manuscripts, we’d love to make it easy on ourselves. We want to make the money, and we don’t want to spend it.
It is all about writing. When it comes down to it, it is also all about making money writing. We’d like to think that some days we write because we are passionate about the concept of living a life of writing, but the truth is that we’d like to quit that day job, or better still get that big advance.
Still as a wise person once said “success shouldn’t be measured in money.” Many will add that what matters is the joy of writing — except, when money is slow to come in.
Then what happens?
Becoming a writer is a challenge. We would like to think that all we need to do is make money to prove we are writers.
So when the money isn’t there, the best thing we can do is go back, and fix up our work and keep on writing, and set a new goal for publishing. We can always see success in the end.
