Because the more I read, the more I find out, the more I feel like getting published is like shooting an arrow in New York and hitting a bullseye in China. Blindfolded. Behind your back. With somebody constantly moving the bullseye. On a windy day.
Oh, that one's GOOD. I'm stealing it [grin]
But *then* I go look at people who are published. I read absolute crap on the shelves of bookstores and I think, "Oh, for crimney's sake. How the in the good godfearing motherloving hell did this get published? Who is running this show?
THAT, in a nutshell, is why a lot of writers persevere and get there. That "I can do better than THAT. I HAVE done better than that. There's GOT to be a way to make someone see this" attitude.
Heck, that's why I'm here...
