1 - I gave up worrying about sales, three years ago and it helped keep me calm. No use worrying over things I have no control over.
2 - I gave up the idea of attaining my goal several years ago - nobody will publish my work in book form, unless I do it and I can't afford the covers.
3 - Life left me behind in 2011, when my tendon tore. Since then, I have fought a losing battle to keep mobile. This year, the battle got harder when I decided if I was going out, I would need a walker not my walking stick.
This week, I made a monumental decision, I am not going to attempt to make money from writing - I tried and the only things it brought were heartache and despair.
If I do write, big IF, I will probably put it on here. At least that way, hopefully the work won't all be for waste.
