Are there really that many more people writing and trying to publish now than in recent history? I don’t know. And, to go a step further, I don’t think it matters much.
Admittedly, I’m a neophyte. Everything in the world of indie lit seems so new & exciting. Folks pursuing passions while others are mired in the frustration of unrealized expectations. It, to me, is all so wonderfully fascinating. The postulations of the demise of indie lit based on poorly written and/or published works are particularly amusing. I’m not sure where my work fits into this grand scheme. I can only hope that it exists somewhere between the ‘fantastic’ and the ‘not so much so.’
Into whichever category I am placed, this much I know: without good there is no bad. So either way, I find solace in the notion that I have contributed to the cause.--
