What does it take to write for a living? It takes a lot. You have to love your craft as much as you love anything else on this earth. You have to want it, you have to want the freedom to write and you have to be willing to pay the price for it.
And the price is time.
You have to learn your craft and that takes time.
While you’re waiting for that to kick in, you’ll have to put up with hundreds of rejections, disappointments, setbacks and turn around's. But it’s all for the best because eventually….if you don’t give up ….you’ll come to understand that rejections don’t matter because usually it’s just some Bozos wrong opinion. You’ll see that disappointments don’t last, set back help you to regear and turn around work both ways.
