… and I’ve been happier ever since. I do wonder how many authors have made this choice to stay sane. Another question I was wondering about the other day: Is getting published a right or a privilege. I’m not a big believer in rights or deserving for various reasons, so I consider it a privilege. But then again, I certainly understand the frustration of good writers not getting published. And I have a real problem with people who want to write not doing so. If you have a novel inside of you, I feel you owe it to the world to conquer your fear and write it. But that’s me. What do you think?
