The Bottom End of a Publishing Career

August 13, 2018

I labored to create a writing career.

I tried an author's ladder whom I admire, and while I climbed rather high, the view before reaching my dream was still the same—the tail end of another writer.

While I was getting good at climbing ladders and following others, I was getting tired of rumps.
