Just remember this one key: Writing is not about money. Writing is about writing. Write what you can when you can and don't listen to anyone--not even that little voice inside you--saying "You can do this for the money!"--because less than %.01 of writers can get away with doing it for the money. Everyone else has to work. Chekov had to work. Oliver Sacks had to work. Rabelais had to work. Schiller had to work. You won't find a writer who didn't have to work other than people like Steven King.

So. NEVER feel pressure to PUBLISH. Only feel the bei xi jiao ji of writing.

I had one of my most successful months this past September. One of the most successful in five years on the platform. Know what I made? Less than $85. Do NOT think about doing this for the money.
