Why do I struggle with how hard it is to get published these days?
Pre-printing press – HARD.
Pre-bookstore – HARD.
Pre-publishing company – HARD.
Pre-internet – HARD.
Pre-self-publishing companies – HARD.
Pre-next shiny thing – HARD.
Selling a book is like losing weight – there’s no easy answer. It takes drive, perseverance, an unwavering commitment to the end result, and a crystal clear reason “why.” There are going to be obstacles – lots of them.
Get used to it.
Put your ass in the chair and write.
