When people tell you your writing is great but you can't get an honest review or hardly any sales to save your life

It's like people telling you you're good-looking while you can't ever get a girl to agree to a coffee date. Results talk, bullshit walks.

I should've become a drawer instead of a writer. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but I think it's worth a lot more than that since people like pictures while getting them to read a thousand words is like pulling teeth.

I used to enjoy reading when i was a kid. But i haven't done any serious reading since i was a teen unless it's school or work or forum related because i can't see it being worth the time. As movies and games improve i think books are a dead artform. Now the only people that read just read the big book names. Eg. Harry potter. There's less room for smaller books around the edge because there are less people reading in general.

Also this is true of any art. 90% of major studio album releases fail miserably and never sell anything at all. Similar is now likely happening to indie app and game designers. Art is a very high risk business.

That's where the term "starving artist" comes from.

Writing books seems pretty outdated. The last time I read a literature novel was like 2 years ago. I only read technical STEM textbooks. Most modern day zoomers get their media from shows/movies and vidya and VNs.

Yeah, I agree, the novel is a dying medium. I should probably learn to draw so I can make VN's or webcomics. Or Fortnite porn.
