I have been known to rant a bit, but then I believe passionately in writing and those wonderful feelings of satisfaction achieved after writing and publishing something worthwhile. Being an author is not easy. Your best work is often the result of laboured productivity where you have to wrench experiences from deep within and to share them with the world. You put your heart and soul on the line every single time you have something published. Writing is hard work, you face rejection, you feel the brunt of reader feed-back, you are filled with doubts at times about your own skill-set, oh and the road to making a million is a long and trying one.
