I've been told by many cover designers, they wish they had my talent for writing. Take it from me, it is a hard life as a writer, they make as much with one cover as I make in a year selling e-books.
I've been accused of being a writer who starts a story but never finishes it. That is one way of looking at the situation, from my viewpoint it's more a case of why write if nobody is going to read the story?
I often wake - as I did yesterday - with the intention of writing a story but then think why bother? Who's going to read it?
