|It's like writing a short story, like my five star rated short story!|
One of the criticisms I received about Immortal Space is that I tend to be repetitive. I repeat something in a different way. Just like that. That's a habit I picked up with article writing. Sometimes to flesh an article, or book (especially a book) you need to do things like that. Not in fiction though. It also kills my ability to write fiction. I can't bring myself to write anything besides these books. It wouldn't be so bad if I was getting a half decent wage but in order to do that I'd need to do two or three times as much work as I currently do. If I did that I'd have killed myself by now.
It'd be nice if I could take that money and invest it, but I don't know if what I want to do with that kind of thing is achievable. I have one idea, that should hopefully work well, but in order to fund it I'd still have to do this for five or six weeks. I don't want to dip into my savings anymore than I already have.
So, yeah, if I'm depressed or cranky then you know why.
If you're curious I earn $45 per book. It's supposed to be $50 but Upwork, the site I find work through, takes a 10% fee.
