I read the blogs of a couple of very successful authors who shall remain nameless, and I've noticed something that is driving me absolutely nuts. These guys, these very successful guys, are living the dream and what are they doing? They're bitching about it! "I have too many conventions to go to. Too many functions where I have to sit at a table and have hundreds of people come up and tell me they love my work."
I wonder if they remember the lean years? I wonder if they remember getting up early to write before heading off to the day job, or staying up late after the baby is put to bed?
Drives. Me. Nuts!!!
