Authors who are way more successful than me talk about how difficult publishing can be.

The original tweet is directed to male-identified authors because the discussion sprang from another one about the difficulties female-identified authors have getting reviews, tours, etc.

What this tells me is that I should be working on my book, not going online to have my blissful ignorance shattered.

[Also, this is my first post with my new blog theme. I'm still getting used to it.]

When I’m really feeling worn-down by the various pressures of this business, I stay off-line and try to concentrate on the thing that started me down this road in the first place: the writing.

Because, if I’m in that frame of mind, I lose perspective. If people are having problems, it makes me feel as if there’s no future, and if people are doing well, it makes me feel like the only failure.
