      Interesting article...

      Which Writer Has It Hardest?
      by Dr. Vicki Hinze


      Is it hardest to be:

      a.. A new writer?
      b.. An experienced aspiring writer?
      c.. A newly published writer?
      d.. Or a multi-published writer?
      I'm hoping you have your rhino hide in place because the answer isn't a
      pleasant one.

      Most writers believe that once you achieve a certain goal, be it getting
      your dream editor or agent to read your work, or making that first sale, or
      making the second sale, that the challenges and hard times are over and that
      simply isn't the way it works.

      Writers at every level face challenges, just different challenges.

      The new writer struggles with learning the intricacies of craft and those of
      an unfamiliar business. S/he often feels as if s/he is floundering, lost in
      the tomb of "don't know how." How to master this technique, to convey the
      vision in the head onto to the page. How the business works. What happens
      when, who makes it happen. Walking unfamiliar ground, the new writer needs
      affirmation that s/he can write, and the resources for getting that
      affirmation are often difficult to find. A daunting challenge. believe that
