Nobody wants you.
While I was trying to get a contract for my books, there were no genuine offers, and yet this morning I had an email offering me the opportunity to enter a romance film writing contest at a discounted price.
The first irony is that I cannot afford any more expenses as I am not selling e-books. The second irony is I am no longer writing.
I have tried to enter this type of contest several times with no success, so there is no point in even thinking about the competition even if I could afford the outlay.
