Headaches and heartaches

 Tonight I started the mammoth task of re-editing my 120 page story "A Sailor's Love," in the hope it may win another award at as did "Chronicles of Mark Johnson," two years ago.

At the back of my mind is the thought, why should I bother?
The task involves a lot of work and for what reward? Perhaps a quick blip on the ranking at Amazon as one copy gets sold.

 A recent survey claimed most writers make less than $1,000 per annum. I would be happy to make $100 per annum, at least that way I would get some joy in thinking somebody cared for my work. I never expected a lot, the meagre $10 a month was my target but that appears out of my grasp.
