a bit depressing, actually.
As he was also right that a lot of people like to blame ME for my situation rather than looking at the whole picture and realizing that I'm living in one of the 2 or 3 places that are still doing okay (government-town) and I can't get a job. This is not a reflection upon me, but a reflection upon the economy. Even my boyfriend, who's going for a masters degree can't quite get a job either. You'd think that having more education would make him shine above the rest, but that's really not the case either.

In that case I have two words that might lift your spirits: 'Potential movie rights.'

Okay, that was three words, but you get my point. It's true that most authors might not make a living selling books, but good books get made into movies, right?

When I feel down about potential income, I close my eyes and imagine getting an excited phone call from the agent I don't yet have, telling me about a bidding war for the movie rights to my novel.

It won't help you in the right now, but it sure makes me feel better when I do it. Maybe it'll work for you :)

Hope that helps.

lol
amusing thought. I'll need to improve more before that ever happens, though... or get Oprah interested in my work. (unlikely)

thanks for trying to cheer me up, though! <3
