Many western adults and teenies think they have what it takes to write books for a "dream" living.
I say most are dreaming, ironic - the word dream, and don`t realise what a waste of time it can be trying.
1. Publishers don`t respond to unsolicited manuscripts and only accept from agents or published authors.
2. People take "creative writing courses" unbeknownst of the masses also doing one. Talent is natural not learned.
3. Earning a living from writing is difficult. Most need other work. Most published authors need other work to survive.
Why do people try or believe they can?
I`m interested in your opinions.
PS: I have two writing projects I am working on.
