Sometimes it helps just to read articles like these (Kristi Holl), or to join a discussion like this because you're reminded that we all have some of these experiences in common. To put it another way, knowing you're not the only one suffering helps! As for me, I like what Mikki said, I go outside, breathe in the fresh air and say thank you for another chance.

I was told by a fellow author recently to "be careful" in writing for the market, because this business has a high burn out rate, and writing something other than what you love is sure to cause you to burn out sooner rather than later. Her words made sense. I'm wondering about burn out, and what kind of averages there are in this business. I am still struggling to even make ends meet (in my writing world), at this point. Any advice on how to keep from "burning out"?

Catacombs.

Lots of fun stuff happens there...

... and lots of fun things live there...  Grin

Indeed!



and some like to feed off other things that live there.. or just happen to innocently wander in aimlessly, get lost (although sometimes I wonder if its more like I've they've been left behind)....

I was looking for the magic pill in that article, but I'm still in group three. I'm a little afraid of the consequences of exploring my options though.

Yesterday, I was in the (number one) give up group. I had been reading a whole lot of blogs telling me to write for the market. That only made me want to give up.

So, today is a different day. I think I can be in group (three) and soldier on.  I'm learning how to be patient.  Roll Eyes

Thank you for the link Jojo. I especially appreciated the "No Magic Pill" with the three choices: keep your day job and give up, put it off until later, or "Never give up".  I'm in the never give up group, and if I can't find a publisher then I'll publish it myself.
