Yes, but...

Our group has got some work published. Yes, but none of us are actually going to get paid.

You can play this game for years.

Yes, but I didn't get paid for it. Yes, but it was only a small press journal. Yes, but I didn't get paid much. Yes, but I haven't had my own book published. Yes, but my book didn't sell that well. Yes, but I'll never be able to write another bestseller. Yes, but I got a bad review. Yes, but the critics say it isn't great literature. Yes, but J.K.Rowling is still earning more than me.

A really skilful player of this game can deny that they've achieved anything worthwhile pretty much indefinitely.

Good evening Alison Williams, I find it very refreshing to occasionally find a post such as yours with an unusual topic such as this post. It somehow ads to ones list of lifes experiences.

I have a soft spot for blogs related to story writing and /or sites that have a central theme around story writing type items.

Once again, thank you Alison Williams, keep up the unusual posts.
