See all these famous books? Yours probably won't be here.
These are the harsh realities you must face as an aspiring author:
1. You won't make much money, if any, at all.
I have put so many countless hours into my book and this blog and I'm okay with that! I have another job and I do this on the side as a hobby. If you plan on making this your main form of income, it won't happen. Or roll up your sleeves, work hard, be patient and get lucky.
2. Most writers never make it.
Yeah, it's true. Your odds of success are slim to none
3. No one really cares.
"OMG you wrote a book! I'm going to put my phone down and read it right now!" - said no one ever.
4. Facing rejection and harsh criticism.
I'm prepared for this. What I'm not prepared for however, is downright mean and hurtful comments :(
5. You do everything right but still have little to no success.
Not everyone is a winner. At this point it's best to shelf it and write a second book and admire what you've accomplished because not everyone can say they've written a book.
What harsh realities are you prepared for or scared of? Is there any I forgot to add?
