been lucky enough to have been published and paid money! not a lot and not very
often. always keep trying. do not let rejection bother you, all the best writers were rejected at one time. one day your work will land on an editors desk and they will see greatness in your writing. keep going. don't be put off by people, unless every single person who reads your work says, knock it on the head! then maybe you should? bollocks to that! we all need a passion in life. those who have no interest in writing, reading, music, any form of creativity are dead. you don't have to be the GOAT. long live us amateurs! recently added some vocals and music to my stuff. i just write and warble , a friend who is the real talent makes the music.
