Tired & Frustrated

I'm not going to lie and say that this is a cake walk. It isn't. It clearly isn't a journey for the faint of heart, I'll tell you that. I'm tired and I'm frustrated and quite frankly right now I'm sick of being told no and getting nasty reviews. It's one thing for someone to not like your work, but another entirely to stop you from doing your dream and for me that will always be: writing. Among other things this is the strongest dream I have right now. No one will take that from me.

Sure, it would be easy to walk away. It would be easy to say never again, but I would never be able to live with myself. The Magic Series needs me, all these stories I have yet to write need me, all these poems and essays and short stories need me. But right now more than anything I'm sick of begging for reviews, being told no, and not knowing when the third book of my Magic Series will be out. I think it's the lack of reviews that have my editor concerned. I think the fact that the first book in my Magic series is halved into two positive and two negative reviews may be deterring readers from purchasing the first and second book of my series.

I work a forty hour a week job on top of this that I hate and I'm just so frustrated with everything right now. I just want something to go right and everything seems to be going wrong. So, please, if you have a kind word for me or a review to impart please do so. I feel like taking up scorpion petting at the moment.
