Writing is not the most forgiving profession. Oftentimes, it can’t support a lifestyle and the goal of being a novelist can take years and years to come to fruition, especially in a way that most people would consider profitable. Many people measure success by the amount of money you make doing something, but writing isn’t always a money-making thing. Some people who write have no interest in publishing or becoming famous novelists. They write because they love it, as do all writers. When you’re writing, though, it’s important to find your support network and hold onto it.
