    And very few of us manage to get paid for it.”

    As a long time slogger, erm, I mean blogger, you have succinctly put into words the struggle. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve thrown in the towel – usually on the heels of yet another rejection from one publisher or another.

    This year I’ve decided to just write. I’ve built up enough of a following to know my writing makes a difference somehow, somewhere and I’m resisting the urge to “tell them all to go to hell” everytime my subscription list goes down.

    Though your quote from The Joker from the linked post is something that haunts me, I’m just now exploring what it means to be able to write for an audience who appreciate what I have to say.

    I’m trying to sink into the moment instead of invalidating it. After all, there was a time when the only people who read my stuff were my mother and all the good people on my Christmas card list.

    I’m still, however, bitter and not there yet 😉
