It isn't about the money I make writing for others.
My dilemma about whether to continue as a writer is about my work. None of my e-books sell, I keep being told that it's a tough nut to crack - I know that - after four years, you'd think I'd see some progress, but I don't.
From the letters of thanks on my Upwork profile, I know some people appreciate my work https://www.upwork.com/freelancers/~0115a52654d3cda29a, to me that means a lot.
I am still writing, but not for myself, I am writing in the hope of selling stories to other people. If a story can sell, I don't object to selling to another person.
